Terror, and Prayer: A conversation in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks

Monday, November 23 | 5:30 p.m.

DeLand Campus: Rinker Auditorium | Lynn Business Center

In the aftermath of recent terrorist attacks, many people are left with more questions than answers. Why did this happen? What is ISIS/ISIL/Daesh? What options are being considered by the United States and other countries to prevent terrorism? What roles can faith and education play in preventing terrorism?

On Monday November 23 from 5:30 - 7:00 p.m. in the Lynn Business Center Rinker Auditorium, Stetson University will convene a flash panel of experts who will reflect on these prompts. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and share thoughts through moderated discussion. This event is free and open to the campus and community. Cultural Credit will be provided.

Panelists:

  • Dr. Eugene Huskey, Department of Political Science
  • SPC Christopher Griffin, ’14 Army Medic
