UIC CONTINUES 'FUTURE OF CHICAGO' SERIES
The University of Illinois at Chicago continues to address issues of public concern as part of its "Future of Chicago" lecture series. The lectures promote public debate between national experts and UIC students with a focus on governmental issues. Dick Simpson, professor of political science and former Chicago alderman, organizes the series, hosted by UIC since 1976.
Lectures will be held in UIC's Lecture Center D-4, 804 S. Halsted St., from noon to 1 p.m., unless otherwise indicated. All lectures are free and open to the public.
"There are three critical areas of leverage by which the legislative branch of Chicago's municipal government can shape the future of the city: the revitalization of the downtown business district, the maintenance of the city's significant manufacturing business base, and the use of new and innovative tax levees to boost the city's commercial life," said Burke.
"Morality policies are different than standard economic, regulatory or developmental policy," said Mooney. "These include policies on abortion, death penalty, pornography, the right to die and so forth."
