LSA Theme Semesters connect the great intellectual and cultural strengths of the University of Michigan to the issues defining our world today. Across campus, faculty and students explore through special courses, guest speakers, performances, and other public events complex issues in ways that strive for perspective and insight. 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.
