The Bucknell Forum

National Speaker Series

The State of American Democracy

The 2022-23 Bucknell Forum will feature speakers from across the political spectrum offering their perspectives on the theme “The State of American Democracy.” Up next is Jake Tapper, lead Washington anchor for CNN, who will appear in person for a candid conversation with President John Bravman on Nov. 30 at the Weis Center for the Performing Arts. 

The speaker series began Sept. 13 with Condoleezza Rice, 66th Secretary of State of the United States. In the spring, the series continues with a conversation with John Kasich, former Republican governor of Ohio, and David Axelrod, former senior adviser to President Barack Obama; and Barbara F. Walter '86, author of New York Times bestseller How Civil Wars Start (and How to Stop Them).
