ICLU executive director to give presentation for Community Semester

March 21, 2013

One Community Semester event on justice and civil rights is set for March 25.

Jane Heneger, executive director of the Indiana Civil Liberties Union, will speak from 2 - 4 p.m. March 25 on "Seeking Justice and Preserving Rights: A Challenge of Our Time." Heneger's presentation about legal cases recently won by the ICLU will take place in Holmstedt Hall Room 102. She will also discuss the process and prisoners rights and litigation pending in Indiana courts.

The Community Semester, which focuses on the theme "Our Town," is a way for the College of Arts and Sciences to showcase what it does best and to encourage faculty and students to share what they are learning to the community. It is also a way to bring innovative ideas in the science, humanities, liberal and creative arts to the area.
