Launching the signature program of the Kennedy administration, it ignited the idealism of a generation and is a vivid memory for everyone who was there and a point of pride for everyone affiliated with the University. The full story of this historic event will be told by the Director of U-M’s International Center, which hosts the University’s Peace Corps Office.

For Fall 2010, the question is “What Makes Life Worth Living?” Something for Rotarians as well as U-M students to ponder, to be sure, and John Chamberlin, Director of the U-M Center for Ethics & Public Life (and spouse of Rotarian Marsha) will help us do just that.
