Dean’s Debate Series Tackles Controversial Topic

The second in the fall series of Dean’s Debates at Quinebaug Valley Community College, which examines the often contentious topic of abortion, will be held Wednesday, November 15, at 12:30 pm in the college’s auditorium.

Alfred Williams, dean of academic affairs and student services, and Heath Hightower, associate professor of human services will debate both sides of “Abortion is morally unjustified”, followed by a community cross-examination period when the audience can ask questions. These 45-minute Lincoln-Douglas style debates are designed to promote spirited and thoughtful civil discourse about a range of topics.

In addition, each of the debate series will include a post-debate community discussion about the topic, facilitated by Williams and Hightower. The public is invited to attend and join the conversation.

For additional information, please contact Heath Hightower at 860-932-4139 or hhightower@qvcc.edu
