In the Know ‘Dores


Suzanne Globetti
Assistant Professor
Political Science Department


Our purpose is to study political and societal developments of our global society (current events) on a daily basis and to share our findings on a group-run Twitter feed (@intheknowDores). We do this to combat the unawareness and news illiteracy prevalent in today’s world so that come tomorrow, Americans can look back and know and understand what brought them here. On a sheltered campus where the focuses are on high-quality academics and having a good time, politics and the national or international stages can easily take a backseat, but we believe that caring and having a sense of awareness about what is going on locally and globally is necessary to understanding our modern society. We have made it our yearlong goal to promote awareness and knowledge seeking in the realm of current events.
