Pulitzer-Winning Author Jon Meacham Visits Feb. 27
Pulitzer Prize-winner, best-selling author and presidential historian Jon Meacham will speak to a sold-out audience on Feb. 27, 2019, in Central’s Nigh University Center Constitution Hall.
Meacham's 2018 book “The Soul of America: The Battle for our Better Angels” examines the present moment in American politics and life by looking back at critical times in U.S. history when hope overcame division and fear. The book was chosen by President Betz for the UCO Book Club.
The event is hosted by the Leadership Minor, the College of Liberal Arts, and the Office of Academic Affairs to commemorate the presidency of President Don Betz.
The college offers more than two dozen undergraduate programs as well as minors and graduate degrees. Every student who begins their educational journey at UCO will take numerous courses in the College of Liberal Arts before a degree is granted.
As such, it is the mission of every member of the College of Liberal Arts to challenge students to speak clearly, write well, appreciate difference, ask questions, act ethically, participate, value the past, encounter the present, and create the future.
