As our mission statement says, “The Salem Center for Policy is dedicated to helping students and business leaders better understand the costs, benefits and consequences of policy decisions.” The weeks before a presidential election are when many Americans think most about policy, and discussions of the upcoming election often throw off more heat than light, so our mission requires us to try to help make sense of the choice facing America. Towards that end, we’ve put together a group of students and faculty to articulate and evaluate the beliefs and values behind our votes.
Our discussion will take place every Friday at 4:30 PM CT leading up to the election.
Thank you to all of our students who participated in the second discussion. Please continue to follow this page, our YouTube Channel, and our other social media accounts to view the next sessions.
