The Hauenstein Center for Presidential Leadership presents their Spring Debate
Topic: "Why Conservatism, Why Progressive?"
Location: Charles W. Loosemore Auditorium, Richard M. DeVos Center
Panelists: Michael DeWilde, Winston Elliot, Barbara Elliot, Ted McAllister, Paul Murphy, Noreen Myers
Is common ground possible in our polarized political and cultural environment?
Join us for a robust exploration of what it means to be a progressive and what it means to be a conservative. Our goal is not to get bogged down in policy wrangling over the issue de jour. Our panelists are interested in the cultural, historic, philosophical, and perhaps religious elements that help explain their commitment to their tradition. The focus and format will provide an opportunity for the vivid articulation of first principles and the fruitful exchange of definitions, redefinitions, reasons, and justifications for the panelists believing the way they do.
