You are invited to a lunch at 12:00 pm on Tuesday, April 28, 2015, at Graham Institute North, 214 S. State St. (next to Sava’s).
This lunch will feature a presentation by Sarah Mills, a post doctoral fellow at the Center for Local, State, and Urban Policy at the Ford School of Public Policy, UM. She will compare the opinions of local government officials in Michigan to the opinions of the general public on a range of Great Lakes issues, including the perceived local economic benefits of the Great Lakes, the support or opposition for policies to improve water quality, and which levels of government should be responsible for regulation. She will also discuss how researchers can gain access to these data sets.
Purposes of the lunch meetings are to foster interactions in an informal setting, and to help build an interdisciplinary network of U-M faculty working on issues related to water. Thus, while we are sending this invitation to a targeted list, certainly feel free to forward this invitation to any colleagues that may be interested in attending.
If you plan to attend, please register by April 22. Space is limited so please respond as soon as you can. While the lunch meeting will end at 1:00 pm, we encourage attendees to continue discussions into the afternoon.
