Dr. Brad Hunt will be joining us from Roosevelt University, where he is a Professor of Social Science and History as well as the Dean of the Evelyn T. Stone College of Professional Studies and Vice Provost for Adult and Experiential Learning.  His research has focused on urban planning and public housing in Chicago, and we think he will stimulate some great conversations to support the symposium theme of social justice.  To find out more information on his scholarship and career, please visit his website.
