Spring 2022 Classes

International Trade and the American Worker

A fact-based discussion of international trade and how it affects American workers. How can international trade create quality jobs for American workers and what are the negative effects?  How can increasing trade and investment outside the United States serve American interests?  What are your concerns about international trade?

The U.S. and the World

An examination of the unique U.S. role in the world, how we got here, and where we are likely to go in the future. 

Like in all our masterclasses, we strip away the jargon of international politics and speak in clear text about us as a people on an undeniably interconnected globe.

April 12, 2022 from 12-2 p.m.

A review of the development and execution of U.S. foreign policy from the ground up -- or rather the top down -- including a discussion of the value for U.S. diplomacy as the first and priority tool of America’s international engagement.
