Presidential Roundtable Graphic 1

January 6, 2021, saw the first-ever assault on the United States Capitol, the seat and the iconic image of America’s representative democracy. Across the country, citizens continue to wonder how we, as a nation, can begin to heal the pain and wounds created that fateful afternoon. Grand Valley State University’s presidents, past and present, encourage us to explore these challenges together. By examining our most cherished institutions, we can learn from their history and apply lessons for our future. In the first installment of the Presidential Roundtable series Jeffrey Rosen, president and CEO of the National Constitution Center, joins President Mantella and past Presidents Thomas Haas, Mark Murray, and Arend Lubbers for an event that probes our nation’s most revered document, the Constitution, and its impact on the events of January 6 and beyond.

The Presidential Roundtable Series is presented by Grand Valley State University, the Hauenstein Center for Presidential Studies, and the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Foundation, assisted by the GVSU College of Liberal Arts & Sciences, the Brooks College of Interdisciplinary Studies, the Office of Student Life, the Frederik Meijer Honors College and its Padnos/Sarosik Civil Discourse Program.
