Great Decisions is the name shared by a program and a publication of the Foreign Policy Association.

Interested AAUW members meet Friday mornings in the months of February, March and April to discuss one of the topics in the Great Decisions Briefing Book. The discussions are lead by a volunteer leader who brings additional information on the chosen topic. The group will meet on eight successive Friday mornings: February 22, March 1, 8, 15, 22, 29 April 5 and 12.
