The St. Olaf College Institute for Freedom and Community will host a conversation with Mike Osterholm, who serves as Regents Professor, McKnight Presidential Endowed Chair in Public Health, and Director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP) at the University of Minnesota, titled “Public Policy and Covid-19.”
“Public Policy and Covid-19” is part of the Institute for Freedom and Community’s Fall 2020 series: The Presidential Election and a Nation in Crisis: Polarization, Pandemic, Prejudice.
The Institute for Freedom & Community encourages free inquiry and meaningful debate of important political and social issues. By exploring diverse ideas about politics, markets, and society, The Institute aims to challenge presuppositions, question easy answers, and foster constructive dialogue among those with differing values and contending points of view. Established at St. Olaf College in 2014, The Institute offers a distinctive opportunity to cultivate civil discourse within a liberal arts setting.
