The University of Delaware's Center for Political Communication has been hosting the National Agenda speaker series since 2010. For this year's theme of "Direction Democracy," nationally known speakers explore where we have been, where we are going, and the current state of democracy in the United States. National Agenda Director Dr. Lindsay Hoffman says, "We are at a critical juncture in this unique experiment that is American democracy. This series sheds light on who we are as citizens, on the left and the right, and even in the middle."
The National Agenda speaker series is free and open to the public. It is held on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 p.m. during the fall semester in Mitchell Hall Theater on the University of Delaware's Newark campus.
Each fall, nationally known speakers examine the most important political issues facing Americans today. We encourage students, staff, faculty and community members to join the conversation. Lindsay Hoffman, Ph.D., a communication and political science associate professor, directs the National Agenda speaker series and teaches the National Agenda class.
