The Eph executive director of The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) is coming to campus for a short visit this Tuesday.

As executive director of the Commission on Presidential Debates, Brown is pivotal in the meticulous determination of format, rules, and moderators for each debate. Among the innovations her Commission initiated during this year’s highly anticipated debate season was the web site Mydebates.org, which allowed users to submit questions for the Oct. 7 town meeting-style debate though a partnership with social networking portal Myspace.

The event at Williams College is made available with the support of the Robert L. Gaudino Memorial Fund, whose programs complement the primary objectives of the college’s educational mission: promoting active learning, combating fragmentation of knowledge, and assembling an open community of learning characterized by integrity, mutual respect, and rigorous intellectual endeavor.

This fall, Professor of Mathematics Edward B. Burger, as the college’s Gaudino Scholar, is offering the first interdisciplinary Gaudino course on the process of creating. In addition, he has developed this series of dialogues of life stories.
