Five professors from Nipissing University will be talking tonight about what the future will be like in 25 years.  They`ll be addressing things like does the technological age mean the end of ethics and will school math still be tough in 2042.  The school has been hosting these crystal ball events as it celebrates 25 years of education in North Bay.  As the title NU2042 suggests, the presentations look at what society could expect in a quarter century.  Dr. David Tabachnick will talk about what ethics will be like in the year 2042 while Dt. Tim Sibbald examines the toughness of math.  Also on the table for discussion is the role of religion as presented by Dr. Nathan Colborne while Dr. Rosemary Nagy asks will human trafficking still be around in 25 years or will society have been able to effectively end it?  Nagy`s subject matter also includes sexual exploitation.  One other professor, Dr. Michelann Parr, looks at will literacy improve?    The presentations from the researchers are only five minutes each and then the public can ask questions.  Dr. Mike DeGagné, the president and vice-chancellor of Nipissing, says the university faculty is engaged in some amazing work that will impact the future without question.  This is the second NU2042 Nipissing is hosting. Tonight`s session is at The Grande Event Centre on Main, is free and takes place from 7:00pm to 9:00pm.
