Town and Gown series at Union to examine children’s welfare

JACKSON, Tenn.April 4, 2011 – The welfare of children in communities will be the topic for the next Town and Gown series at Union University on Monday nights April 4-May 2.

The Town and Gown series is an opportunity for community members interested in various topics to attend lectures and participate in discussions in a classroom setting. The classes are free and open to the public.

Lectures in this Town and Gown installment will examine the well-being of children within the context of communities and will explore the effects of social forces that hinder that well-being. Mary Anne Poe, professor of social work and director of Union’s Center for Just and Caring Communities, said the course material would come from a viewpoint of imagining a future that is just and caring for all children.

Each class will begin at 6:30 p.m. in Providence Hall room 160 and will consist of two lectures, with the exception of the final evening. The class will also be simulcast at Union University Germantown in room 204.

The schedule of lectures for the class is as follows:
