University Faculty to Hold Election 2004 Debate

The Bush-Kerry/Cheney-Edwards debates may be over, but the Boston College campus will be the setting next week for another election year tete-a-tete when four BC faculty members discuss issues surrounding the 2004 presidential race on Thursday, Oct. 28, at 7 p.m. in Devlin 008.

Law School Associate Dean George Brown and Prof. Marc Landy (Political Science) will offer a Republican perspective, while the Democratic view will be put forth by Drucker Professor in Management Sciences Alicia Munnell, a former Clinton administration member who is director of the Center for Retirement Research at BC, and Associate Vice President for Research Michael Smyer, dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.

Ryan Heffernan '06, editor-in-chief of BC's twice-weekly student newspaper The Heights, will serve as moderator.

The event is sponsored by the Office of the Academic Vice President, Boston College Magazine, the Undergraduate Government of Boston College and the BC Quality of Student Life Committee. For more information, call 617-655-4189 or go to

Next week's debate also will serve as the debut of Front Row Live, which will offer free live real-time audio coverage over the Web.
