UMass Amherst plans to host a discussion panel, titled “Election 2016: What happened? What is likely to happen?,” which will include six members of the faculty who will share their opinions on a number of topics regarding public policy.
Katherine Newman, provost of UMass Amherst, will moderate
the panel, which is meant to provide the opportunity for the campus community
to come together so it can benefit from the insight of experts as well as
engage in a discussion and think about possible solutions to national concerns.
Speakers on the panel will include Paul Collins, who
will discuss the courts and judicial behavior; Kathy Forde, the press and mass
media; Jennifer Lundquist, immigration issues; Paul Musgrave, foreign policy; Tatishe Nteta, polling and voter behavior; and Ray La Raja, health care,
political parties and governance.
“Civil discourse and thoughtful dialogue must be the
defining attributes of our approach as we move forward together,” Kumble
Subbaswamy, chancellor of UMass Amherst, said.
