Presented on: Saturday, September 24th at 1:30 PM EDT
The discussion “Our political system on life support: A discussion on critical intervention as well as long-term care” took place at Homecoming 2016. Alumni and friends enjoyed a lively talk about the polarization of the American voters as well as the news media they consume, and how the lack of civic education has made it difficult for Americans to participate effectively in the political process.
