BROWN BAG LUNCH TO DISCUSS ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT

AUBURN -- Auburn University Outreach will sponsor a brown bag lunch on Wednesday, March 10, with professor Keenan Grenell speaking on the topic of economic empowerment.

Grenell, an associate professor in the Department of Political Science, is active in promoting economic empowerment and coordinates AU's annual African American Entrepreneurship Summit.

The brown bag lunch program will be in Foy Union, Room 202, at noon and is open to campus and community participation. The event is free, but participants are urged to bring their lunch.

AU Outreach plans to offer the brown bag lunch programs, dedicated to different subjects, on a continuing basis.

The purpose of the brown bag lunch program, says organizers Mark Williams, outreach graduate assistant, and Millard Johnson, outreach doctoral candidate, is to give the Auburn community an opportunity to voice their concerns and opinions on various ongoing topics.
