November 17, 2015


This year we launched an exciting multi-year series on Character and the Presidency, an annual event that will explore an area in which both Democrats and Republicans have a stake in finding common ground.

This year, historian and presidential biographer Richard Norton Smith spoke on the character of President Gerald R. Ford.

The event also included a panel discussion featuring a growing list of scholars including Hendrik Booraem, Jason Duncan, Grand Valley’s own Donald Zinman, and others.

This program was generously supported by the The Secchia Family and The Meijer Foundation.
