According to the Foreign Policy Association, Great Decisions is America’s largest discussion program on world affairs. The program model involves reading the Great Decisions Briefing Book and meeting to discuss that week’s topic in a courteous and respectful group setting. No other prior knowledge or expertise is expected of participants.

There is a $30 materials fee payable when you pick up your briefing book prior to the first session, or feel free to order you own copy via the Foreign Policy Association website. A reference copy of the Briefing Book is also available for in-library use for participants who do not wish to purchase their own copy.
