 Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  The panel will be moderated by Robert Kulisheck, a political science professor at NMU. “I think it is important for the academic community to consider important international issues and share thoughts and insights with faculty, students and the general community in Marquette,” he said. “The intent is not to provide answers, but to encourage critical thinking about important national issues.”

The panel will include Donald Dreisbach, a philosophy professor; Mohey Mowafy, a professor in the health, physical education and recreation department; James Schiffer, head of the English department; and John Vickers, head of the department of military science.
