Event Navigation

Award-winning author, filmmaker and screenwriter Jennifer Jordan joins RU for a screening of her new documentary “3000 Cups of Tea: The Mission and the Madness,” which addresses allegations made by television news magazine 60-Minutes against philanthropist Greg Mortenson. Author of bestselling book Three Cups of Tea, Mortenson rose to prominence on a mission to build schools for girls in Pakistan and Afghanistan, but has left a legacy tarnished by scandal after accusations of using charitable funds from his Central Asia Institute for personal gain. In addition to the screening, President Dr. Eric W. Fulcomer moderates an on-stage Q&A-style interview with Jordan.
