Philosophy lecture to follow Gandhi’s Global Legacy student awards

This Spring, all Fresno State students were invited to participate in the Gandhi’s Global Legacy Student Media Competition. The competition called for submissions across various categories of media that provide new insights into any aspects of Gandhi’s philosophy of nonviolence.

The Fresno State Peace and Conflict Studies program will hold an award ceremony for students who excelled in the Gandhi’s Global Legacy Student Media Competition with a reception beginning at 5:30 p.m. on April 2 in the Peters Education Auditorium in the Student Recreation Center.

Awards will begin at 6 p.m. followed by the keynote address “Children, Violence, and Gandhi’s Vision of Nonviolence” by Dr. Andrew Fitz-Gibbon, Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Center for Ethics, Peace and Social Justice at State University of New York College at Cortland. Fitz-Gibbon is the author of 14 books including “Love as a Guide to Morals” and “Talking to Terrorists.”

The event is sponsored by the JP & Renu Sethi Foundation, the Fresno State Ethics Center, and Fresno State College of Arts & Humanities.
