IV. Guest Speaker
Teaches in OLRM and is on the environmental studies council- in behalf of the head waters conference she is asking for $2000 to bring in Dr. Vandana Shiva, during parents weekend
She is a global leader in social and does amazing things—because she is so amazing she usually charges $30,000- $35,000 to get her to speak but we can get her here for 7,500- can learn more from her in person to versus from a book. She made a difference in India. The challenge is to think differently.
Asked professors around campus 240 students are required to attend the talk several professors are requiring her books to be read in class and other people have helped with money. She is coming October 17th. Can present next week with the bill. Headwaters started 20 years ago serving headwaters communities this is for the 20th anniversary of the Headwaters Conference. This event would benefit the student body as well as the community of Gunnison and Colorado, apparently they have over 2000 people attend every year.
