For Park University’s 25th Annual Hauptmann Lecture, host of the PBS program “The Open Mind” Alexander Heffner will present a conversation that will navigate three areas of interest across civic life. Heffner will talk about the millennial citizen; the space of old and new media; and the character of political discourse. From the formation of broadcasting to the emergence of social media, Heffner will consider a blueprint for “civic press.” He will also grapple with questions related to President Donald Trump and think about fresh ways young people can frame public policy, while reflecting on the 2016 campaign and how to improve the political process.
The lecture is free and open to the public. Learn more on Park University’s website.
