Courses / Contemporary Issues / ELECTION 2020: AMERICA’s SEARCH FOR OUR NEXT LEADER
Coordinators: Phil Gisser, Sandra Abramson, Wayne Cotter, Patricia Stryker
The Spring 2020 Semester coincides with a particularly active period in a hard-fought Presidential campaign— Primary Season. This course creates an opportunity for every Quester to be heard as the campaigns progress. Each session starts with a brief summary of recent campaign news—primary results, polls, predictions, campaign strategy, scandals, accusations, issues, etc. A brief presentation on a specific aspect of the election will follow and participants will then have an opportunity to present their views. The leader’s main role will be to frame, structure, and guide the discussion.
