Roundtable explores whether average citizens are informed
The Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy will explore whether the average American citizen is adequately informed during a roundtable discussion scheduled for 11:45 a.m. Friday, Dec. 2 in the Miley Hall executive dining room.
The founders believed that the American republic needed an educated and engaged citizenry to prosper – one that understood the basic structure of America’s government, kept up to date on significant public issues and made informed decisions when voting for its leaders.
Dr. William Leeman, associate professor in the Department of History, will moderate the roundtable, which will explore questions such as: In America today, is the average citizen informed? If not, how should we address this issue as a nation?
Roundtable discussions are open to Salve Regina students, faculty and staff, and lunch is provided. As space is limited, those interested in attending should RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
