It’s time to sign up for the Great Decisions Program for 2022

It’s time to sign up for Great Decisions for 2022. Great Decisions is a national program developed by the Foreign Policy Association (FPA) which features 9 discussion topics. The FPA produces a book with background material for each topic. Participants read the background material and then meet in discussion groups to discuss each topic in turn.

Meetings for 2020 are 10-12 on Monday mornings in the East Rec. We plan on 4 groups this year, with each group 14-16 people. Each group meets every other week.
Groups 1 and 2 will meet February 7, 21; March 7, 21; April 4, 18; May 2, 16, and 30
Groups 3 and 4 will meet February 14, 28; March 14, 28; April 11, 25; May 9, 23; and June 6
It appears at this point there will also be a group that will meet on Zoom.

If you are interested in participating, you will need to purchase a workbook produced by the Foreign Policy Association. Cost will be up to $35. Please email us at and we’ll make arrangements for you to get the book. If you’re interested in the Zoom group, please indicate that in your email.

Topics for 2022 will be:

  • Changing Demographics
  • Outer Space
  • Climate Change
  • Russia and the US
  • Myanmar and Asean
  • The Quad Alliance
  • Drug Policy in Latin America
  • Industrial Policy
  • Biden’s Agenda
