GSU Community Forum on the 2008 Election

With so many issues, so many ideas, and so many questions, answers are often hard to define. To help the community at large define the issues and discover the answers, a dialogue will be held at Governors State University. The Community Forum on the 2008 Election, sponsored by the College or Arts and Sciences, will be held on Tuesday, October 28, from 2 to 4:30 p.m., in the Hall of Honors.

“The goal of the forum is to empower the community, provide an opportunity to voice concerns about the issues facing the country, and to share ideas and solutions,” said Dr. Larry Levinson, professor of Political and Justice Studies. “The discussion will focus on the issues and not candidates.”

A panel of four faculty members will begin the event with brief overviews of the major issues of the election. The panelists include Levinson; Dr. Donald Culverson, professor of Political and Justice Studies; Dr. Chelsea Haring, professor of Political and Justice Studies; and Dr. Anthony Andrews, professor in Business and Health Administration.

An open microphone will be available for community members to participate in the discussion.

“We are at a turning point in U.S. history. This forum gives the opportunity to discuss the issues that define that point. It is not a discussion of the candidates. We want to take the personality out of it,” explains Levinson.

The forum is free and open to the public. Governors State University is located at 1 University Parkway, University Park, Illinois. For more information, contact (708) 534-4578.
