UW-Parkside is committed to helping students to become active and responsible citizens at the local, national, and global level.  In Fall 2016, a series of events (lectures, discussions, academic projects, and media presentations) centered on the presidential election will take place on campus. 

A minimum of one event is scheduled each week; students and community members will be able to engage in multidisciplinary discussions and interpretations of the American political process, with the objective of developing a deep sense of citizenship. 

More than 30 events are planned for the Fall semester and include:

1. Televised presidential and vice presidential debates with post debate analysis

2. Brown bag presentations representing various academic disciplines

3. Speak-outs and ice cream socials

4. Speakers series, including Charles Franklin, director of the Marquette University Law School Polls, John Nichols, Washington correspondent for The Nation and associate editor of The Capital Times, and Mike McCabe, founder and president of Blue Jean Nation

5.  Displays – Historic Newspaper Headlines, Presidential losers throughout History

6. Voter posters on display by Intermediate and Advanced students in the Art Department.

The kick off event is 'Political Jams' a noontime musical jam session with political songs, set for the first Friday of the semester!
