Binghamton University is proud to host Eric Schwartz '79 – a public policy expert and former White House and United Nations advisor – for a very special event at 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 30, in Watters Theater. Schwartz will speak about topics of high interest in world politics, and will be happy to take questions from guests in attendance. A reception will follow. The event is free and open to the public.

In 2011, he was named dean of the Hubert H. Humphrey School of Public Policy at the University of Minnesota.
