Great Decisions 2018

Great Decisions is a program created by the Foreign Policy Association.  Begun in 1954, the Great Decisions program is designed to encourage debate and discussion of the important global issues of our time.  The format of the program is intended to promote thoughtful discourse, and to bring people together to express their ideas and opinions, and learn from others.

The Dover Public Library is pleased to partner with Wilmington University to bring this insightful and thought provoking program to the residents of Kent County.

Great Decisions is an 8 week discussion series moderated by Wilmington University History Chair, Lynn Moore.  Attendees are not required to attend all 8 sessions, but are certainly encouraged to do so.  Program topics, dates and times are listed below:
