  • A Conversation with Leon Botstein, President of Bard College and Champion of Liberal Arts Education | 02/04/15 (with live webcast) Leon Botstein Now in his 40th year as president of Bard College, Leon Botstein is one of the great practitioners and one of the most passionate advocates of the liberal arts education.

Others seek to circumvent prohibitions on accessing services at home and go abroad to receive abortions, assisted suicide, commercial surrogacy, or experimental stem cell treatments. How safe are these procedures? How do you ensure that you will be protected if anything should happen? (Public Affairs Program)
