Sink or swim

Prof. Harper
John Harper has been teaching American Foreign Policy at SAIS Bologna for 30 years. For most of that period, he has taught a debate course that has helped legions of students learn how to research topics, deliver a crisp message and think on their feet.

Today we thought we would take time out from the admissions process and its imperatives to take a peek at Prof. Harper's class.

Last week's debate: "Resolved: The United States should limit China's rise".

Our thanks to the debaters -- Kyle Burgess, Matthew Carroll, Elizabeth Fustos and Meredith Secor -- for allowing us to observe.
