Rangos Hall, University Center

Last year, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences released the "Heart of the Matter" report that drew attention to the importance of the humanities and social sciences in American public life. Two members of the academy's Commission on the Humanities and Social Sciences who were authors of the report will participate in a discussion on how the American Academy and CMU are committed to engaging in rich and productive collaborations in order to strengthen the connections among the sciences, arts, engineering and public policy.

The academy members are Norman Augustine, retired chairman and CEO of Lockheed Martin Corporation, and Hunter Rawlings, president of the Association of American Universities.

CMU President Subra Suresh will deliver opening remarks. John Lehoczky, dean of the Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences, will moderate the panel, which will include Augustine, Rawlings and CMU¿s Baruch Fischhoff, Susan Polansky, David Shumway and Kiron Skinner.

A student project showcase and reception will follow the discussion.

This symposium is part of "Crossing Boundaries, Transforming Lives," the yearlong celebration of the inauguration of Subra Suresh as CMU's ninth president.
