You are cordially invited to join us as we host Dean Awn in one of his last DC lectures before stepping down from his position as the Dean of the School of General Studies.

Dean Awn will discuss Gulenism and its religious Sufi roots, how it came to prominence in Turkey especially in schools, universities, police and judicial system, how it came to face its demise at the hands of their former religious and political ally, and what the future holds for Turkey and the Middle East.
