Flint Area Public Affairs Debates
Kettering University is a co-sponsor of the Flint Area Public Affairs Debates, a program devoted to promoting public understanding of critical political and social issues. Since its founding in 1986 by local educational institutions, a member of the Department of Liberal Studies has represented the university on the planning committee. The FAPAD provides four panel discussions or debates a year on such topics as: strategies for improving Flint's business climate, the costs and benefits of increased homeland security, and the advantages and disadvantages of school vouchers.
