President's Dialogue Series welcomes Gwynne Dyer to KPU

Fri, Apr 24, 2015

Surrey, B.C. – The environment, Canada’s place in the world and the future of war are just a few of the things KPU President Dr. Alan Davis will talk about with Gwynne Dyer in the next installation of the President’s Dialogue Series.

A celebrated author, historian and independent journalist, Dyer holds a PhD in Military and Middle Eastern History, has produced several highly acclaimed television series and writes an international affairs column read around the world, from Vancouver, to Dubai, to Japan.

On April 27, Dyer will bring his worldly insights to Kwantlen Polytechnic University in an informal, public sit-down conversation with Dr. Davis.

“We’re continuing an important conversation that began last year about ideas on key issues that face our society,” said Dr. Davis. “KPU is proud to be able to provide a forum where local, national and international leaders can engage with our communities.”

The President’s Dialogue Series welcomes leaders to KPU to join in engaging, informative and much-needed discussion. Speakers exemplify the university’s polytechnic vision, and are leaders in the private and public sectors, both locally and globally. The inaugural event, held last year, featured Opposition Leader Thomas Mulcair.

WHEN: Monday April 27, 10 a.m.
WHERE: Fir 128, KPU Surrey (12666-72nd Ave.)
INFO: The event is open to the public. Space is limited.
