FORUMS BRING GUBERNATORIAL HOPEFULS TO CAMPUS
This past spring, in anticipation of Vermont’s upcoming gubernatorial election, Norwich University held a series of town-hall-style open forums featuring four of the candidates for governor.
Titled “Vermont’s Tomorrow,” the assemblies were produced and moderated by students in the College of Liberal Arts (CoLA). “These are exciting opportunities, implemented by students for students and the public at large,” said CoLA Dean Andrea Talentino. “They showcase the strength of our engagement with policy makers, and Norwich’s laser-like focus on leadership at all levels.” The university radio station, WNUB-FM, aired interviews with each candidate and also broadcast the hour-long forums.
“Vermont’s Tomorrow” is part of the university’s “America’s Tomorrow” initiative, a student-guided program that explores U.S. leadership in the 21st century through interviews with military, business, and political leaders. Podcasts of the interviews may be found on the university’s Peace and War Center website, libarts.norwich.edu/peace-and-war-center.
