Pulitzer Prize winner Fredrik Longevall, Ph.D., will discuss President Obama’s foreign policy, governmental approach and connection to Wilsonian principles at The University of Scranton Schemel Forum luncheon Monday, March 24.

The presentation, entitled “Obama and the World in Historical Perspective,” will begin at noon in the Rose Room of Brennan Hall. Fees vary for the luncheon.
