Upcoming Vacca Lecture on March 28th: Russia Under Putin

Please consider attending the next lecture from our visiting professor on "Russia Under Putin." Vacca Scholar Dmitry Goncharov will again share his unique insights with the UM community:
The 2000 election of a former KGB officer as President marked a new period in the history of Post-Soviet Russia. Since then Russian politics have undergone significant changes which has put an end to democratization of 90’s and moved the country to the ranks of unfree polities. The presentation will address details of this transformation and discuss current developments on the eve of parliamentary and presidential elections in Russia.
Dr. Goncharov will speak in Comer Hall, Room 208 on Wednesday, March 28th at 4:30 PM.

On another note, big congratulations go to the Falcons after their efforts versus Eckard College last night. Marcus Kennedy's near-half court buzzer-beater caps off the 19th consecutive victory for the Falcon men. This marks the second year that the team has advanced to the Elite Eight in NCAA Division II competition. Be sure to follow the team all the way on the Falcon athletics home page.
