Terrorism Expert to Speak on Campus

The threat of terrorism continues to evolve in our changing world. Walter Purdy, director of the Terrorism Research Center in Washington, DC, will lead an interactive public presentation to explore terrorism in the 21st century.

The talk will be at 3:00 p.m. on Friday, March 15, in the College of Law, Room 132.

Democratic elections, economic issues, and social pressures have created numerous challenges and shifts in attitudes and policies on terrorism. Purdy will explore the changing face of global terrorism, terrorism and the media, terrorism and technology, and successes and challenges ahead.

Purdy is a terrorism expert who has completed extensive missions in the Middle East and Asia for the US Department of State and US Department of Justice. He has consulted internationally on projects related to terrorism threat reduction and developed and delivered highly specialized training to law enforcement and the intelligence community.

This event is sponsored by the College of Nursing’s Global Disaster Nursing Program, College of Law, and International House through a grant from the US Department of Health and Human Services.
