R655 Big Issues, Complex Challenges, and No Simple Solutions
Wednesdays, 9:40 – 11:05, Jun. 24 – Jul. 29
Instructors: Glenn Kamber
Class limit: 30
This new class is the same offering as R653. Course discussions will focus on the kinds of topics that both unite and divide us within families, communities, societies, and nations. The goal will be to expand everyone’s thinking and perspectives but not to arrive at answers. Examples of discussion topics include: race and politics, individualism, life after retirement, sharing Utopia, and new tribalism. Topics are new each term in relationship to changing times.
Glenn Kamber has taught many courses at OLLI that focus on current events and political and social issues. He is a retired senior executive from the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), where he managed policy and program development in the offices of eight HHS secretaries.
