Rasmussen Lectures at Whitesboro H.S. Event
Visiting Assistant Professor of Government Ivan Rasmusssen gave a lecture at Whitesboro High School as part of the school’s international student day celebrations on March 11.
Rasmussen discussed the contemporary refugee crisis with a focus on the historical context of the efforts in Europe, especially after the horrors of World War II, to break down borders for economic benefits and creating a shared identity. Rasmussen's speech to more than 500 sophomore and junior students was very well received and he even answered some controversial questions about immigration in the context of the current debate.
