An article in Worcester Magazine highlights how Donald Brand, professor and chair of political science, pushes his students to take a stand on current events like the crisis in Syria in his American Presidency course. Dan Crème ’15, Robert Tiro ’15, and Jonathan Formichella ’15 voiced their opinions on US military intervention in Syria with two favoring a strike and one against the move. Yet, Worcester Magazine stresses how all three students along with Brand agree that the controversy has rightfully sparked discussion.

Tiro told the magazine, “I don’t think we ever shy away from the opportunity to make our opinions known.”
