Wednesday, April 11, 2018, 7 p.m.

Condoleezza Rice and Susan Rice, two former national security advisors with differing points of view, will discuss current issues on Wednesday, April 11, 2018, at 7 p.m. in the College’s Margaret Scott Bundy Field House.

The program combines the longtime Sacerdote Great Names Series with the new Common Ground program for a moderated discussion open to the public. The program is free, but tickets will be required. More information will be posted in mid-March.

About Common Ground

The goal is for the speakers to model the kind of respectful dialogue across political boundaries that should occur not just on college campuses, but in the broader society as well. With capable speakers on both sides of a given issue, each willing to acknowledge strengths in the position of the other speaker, we aim to encourage students and other audience members to question their own assumptions and consider carefully the evidence and arguments supporting other viewpoints.

David Wippman — Hamilton President

Common Ground is supported by the Pohl family in honor of Hamilton graduates Arthur, Class of 1914, Harold, Class of 1915, Leland, Class of 1917, Harold ’50, George ’51 and David ’54 in recognition of their affection for the College and their long association with the Central New York region.
