The Bucknell Institute for Public Policy's Fall Election Series: Election 2016: What's at stake?

While the news about this year's election has been dominated by discussions about the personalities of the candidates for president, the election of officials at all levels will have important implications for the formation of policy.  What impact has the election politics had on the political engagement of America's youth?  What is the history of our criminal justice system and what are the chances of reform?

The Bucknell Institute for Public Policy has organized a series of evening lectures, Pizza & Policy panels, and opportunities for you to be engaged in the political process.  Join us as we ask the vital policy questions. || View all events in the series.
