The McGuire Center for Entrepreneurship and the Center for the Philosophy of Freedom are pleased to announce the Robert Lusch Lecture Series, which is named in honor of the former executive director of the McGuire Center for Entrepreneurship. A prolific researcher, Lusch was well known for his work in service-dominant logic, which rests on the notion that the basis of all economies is the exchange of service among humans.

Please join us for the Spring 2020 Robert Lusch Lecture Series. This semester, we are honored to host Jill Robinson, Founder and CEO of Animals Asia Foundation. 

Jill Robinson founded Animals Asia in 1998 and since has rescued almost 600 bears from the bile industry where bears are caged and face regular, painful extractions for use in traditional medicine. Over 12,000 bears remain caged by bile farms in China and Vietnam alone. Jill and Animals Asia’s work also extends to ending the consumption of dogs and cats, and helping the plight of animals in captivity.

Please join us for a two-night event where we will hear from Jill on Monday, February 24, and then go to an exclusive film screening on Tuesday, February 25 at the Loft Cinema, followed by a Q&A with Jill herself.
