Joe Biden has assumed the Presidency during some of the most turbulent times in the nation’s history. With both Congress and the nation closely divided between the parties, can Biden govern? What are the prospects for his agenda on immigration, racial justice, climate change, economic stimulus, confronting the coronavirus, and other issues? We will tackle these questions and consider whether public confidence in elections and democracy can recover from the bitterly contested 2020 campaign. Professor Mark Alan Smith will moderate conversations with Professors Sophia Wallace, Rebecca Thorpe, Jake Grumbach, and James Long.
Please join us for our upcoming faculty panel on "The Biden Agenda: Promises and Prospects" on Monday, February 22 from 5:30 to 7:00 PM.
