Paul Loeb, political activist and author, coming to Hays

HAYS, KS -- ProjectSERV AmeriCorps, the Student Government Association and the Fort Hays State University Provost's Office invite the public to hear Paul Loeb, author, lecturer and scholar at Seattle's Center for Ethical Leadership

Loeb has visited over 200 colleges and universities, including Harvard, Stanford, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Columbia, Dartmouth, Brown and Princeton. Loeb has attempted to go beyond prevailing media stereotypes of youth apathy to understand the struggle of this generation with his book: Generation at the Crossroads: Apathy & Action on the American Campus.

Loeb has also taught people how to get involved in their communities and gain the moral, political and intellectual tools to take action. His discussions on civic involvement are discussed in further detail in his book, Soul of a Citizen: Living with Conviction in a Cynical Time.

Loeb's work has received coverage and critical acclaim from countless journals and newspapers, including The New York Times, Washington Post, New York Review of Books, Time, Newsweek, Chronicle of Higher Education, Los Angeles Times, Redbook, Chicago Tribune and dozens of others. Loeb has also conducted more than 800 TV and radio interviews, including numerous nationwide appearances on outlets such as CNN, PBS, National Public Radio, CBS and NBC.

Loeb will be conducting a faculty workshop in the afternoon and will speak to the public on Monday, Nov. 5., at 7 p.m. in the Beach/Schmidt Performing Arts Center.
