Institute of Politics highlights

The Institute of Politics will host United States Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) during its fall programming. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass) cancelled a scheduled visit last Friday due to the Senate’s vote schedule and instead spoke to a campus audience via video feed.

McCain will speak to students during an off-the-record session at the Quadrangle Club, 1155 E. 57th St., in October.

Other programs will include “Lessons from the U.S. War in Iraq: 10 Years After the Invasion,” featuring Iraqi journalist Ali Adeeb al Naemi, former U.S. Ambassador James Jeffrey, retired U.S. Army Colonel Peter Mansoor and former CIA intelligence analyst and author Kenneth Pollack.

They will speak at 6 p.m. on Oct. 23.

The university’s Department of Medicine’s MacLean Center for Clinical Medical Ethics, in partnership with the IOP, will host a series of conversations about the evolution of health reform and the Affordable Care Act.

The dates and locations of those conversations are to-be-announced.
