The Sullenger Diaglogues are a tribute to the wonderful work of a dedicated university employee. Joanne Sullenger was the architect of the Frances Willson Thompson Critical Issues Forum. Charged with bringing to life the vision of Mrs. Thompson, it was Joanne who created the Critical Issues Forum speaker series and turned it into a great Flint tradition.
Different than the lecture during the luncheon presentation, the Sullenger Dialogues are designed to encourage an intimate conversation between the visiting experts, distinguished UM-Flint faculty, students, and the community. The Sullenger Dialogues are free and open to anyone who wishes to engage in the spirited discussion of ideas.
Each Sullenger Dialogue is held at 10:00 a.m. in the Harding Mott University Center Michigan Rooms or the UM-Flint Theatre, and is immediately followed by a book signing. The Barnes and Noble University Bookstore will have copies of the speakers' books for sale before and after the events
