Austin Peay State University hosting Brexit panel to help community make sense of historic event

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – If you were born after 1993 – which is the case for most Austin Peay State University (APSU) students – then you’ve only known a world where the United Kingdom is a part of the European Union (EU).

That fact can seem trivial, especially if you’re living 4,000 miles away in Tennessee, so when Great Britain announced it would be the first country to leave the EU – a move known as “Brexit” – many people on campus and in the Clarksville area reacted with mild curiosity.

Austin Peay will hold a special panel discussion in the campus’ Honors Commons to help educate the local community on Brexit’s potentially global impact. (APSU)
