The work of Campus Watch will be highlighted via two speaking engagements this week.
On Wednesday, October 10, I'll be a panelist at a Philanthropy Roundtable higher education conference at the Capital Hilton Hotel in Washington D.C. titled, "Middle Eastern Studies, Higher Education, and the Fight Against Terror."
Philanthropy Roundtable is an organization that provides advice and counsel to donors in order to help them "achieve their charitable objectives," which include higher education. I'll be speaking about the problems in Middle East studies and what Campus Watch is doing to address them.
The conference will be moderated by Mugged By Reality author and former president of St. John's College in Santa Fe John Agresto, and speakers include Cliff May and David Silverstein of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies and Middle East scholar Martin Kramer. The event is invitation only, but I'll be sure to report back on any interesting developments.
For those in the San Francisco Bay Area, on Sunday, October 14, I'll be speaking about Campus Watch's focus on California at a meeting of MEICOR, the Middle East Information Council of Rossmoor. The talk will take place at 4pm at the Rossmoor retirement community in Walnut Creek. Check the Rossmoor News website for an upcoming announcement. If interested in attending, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll try and make arrangements.
