OSUM Dean Joining Other Leaders In Discussing How To Reconnect America

19 Jan , 2021  

The Ohio State University’s “Education for Citizenship Discussion Series,” organized by deans, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion and other university leaders, kicked off last week, and hundreds joined in a virtual discussion about fostering deliberative democracy in this era of political polarization.

The Divided Community Project has planned the next event, “Becoming Weavers in a Divided Nation,” which is scheduled for 5:15 to 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, January 21. Speakers include:

  • David Brooks, New York Times op-ed columnist
  • Sarah Cole, Moritz Chair in Alternative Dispute Resolution
  • Norman Jones, dean and director, Ohio State Mansfield
  • Jacquelyn Meshelemiah, associate vice provost for diversity and inclusion
  • Teri Murphy, co-director of Conflict to Peace Lab, Mershon Center for International Security Studies
  • Gene Smith, senior vice president and Wolfe Foundation Endowed Athletics Director
  • Lena Tenney, diversity, equity and inclusion officer, College of Pharmacy

Subsequent discussions are planned for January 28 and February 4. We will hold additional conversations in the coming weeks. Details are available on the Education for Citizenship Initiative website along with resources for respectful and productive dialogue.
