"Exposure to scholarship and the opportunity to be engaged in analytical discussions about global interests and concerns are two very important elements in the academic experience for students," said Dr. Sharron Herron-Williams, interim associate provost for Academic Affairs. "Having our students expand their knowledge base and provide their input in the global conversation with John Zogby gives them an advantage over many of their peers nationally and internationally. Alabama State University has created a global community that is active and engaged and will continue to provide more opportunities of this nature for our students and the community."
