The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh American Democracy Project will host a roundtable conversation to discuss ethics, politics, voting and strategies for citizen engagement. The event–called Real Issues. Real Dialogue. Real Change.–takes place from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 8, at Reeve Union Ballroom, Room 227BC, on the UW Oshkosh campus.
Anyone who wishes to engage in conversations about important issues or wishes to make change in the community, is encouraged to attend.
“I am always amazed at the productive and energized conversations students have at this annual event,” said Jennifer Considine, American Democracy Project faculty chair. “They seem to enjoy the low pressure opportunity to engage with instructors and other students about important local and global issues. Our hope is that these dialogues spark students to get engaged with issues that matter most to them.”
The roundtable is part of the American Democracy Project’s spring series of engagement and education events.
The mission of American Democracy Project is to encourage civic engagement and awareness among college students. On the UW Oshkosh campus, American Democracy Project runs voter registration drives, organizes candidate forums, sponsors speakers, encourages volunteerism and offers forms of engagement and service learning. The group is focused on higher education’s role in preparing the next generation to be informed, engaged citizens.
