Delaware Debates 2018 marks the fifth such biennial event at UD, an initiative that began in 2010.
It was part of this year’s National Agenda speaker series, “Midterm Matters,” that looks at how campaign strategy, news coverage, polling and election cybersecurity affect midterm elections and why civic engagement is important.
The final sessions of National Agenda will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 24, with comedian Amberia Allen speaking on “Humor Matters,” and Wednesday, Nov. 14, the week after the election, when Washington Post Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists Mary Jordan and Kevin Sullivan will reflect on the midterm results.
National Agenda talks take place at 7:30 p.m. in Mitchell Hall and are free and open to the community. Registration is optional but recommended; visit the Eventbrite page for details.
The debates were supported by the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network and by numerous UD sponsors, including the College of Arts and Sciences, Office of the Provost, Office of the President, School of Public Policy and Administration, Department of Communication, and Department of Political Science and International Relations.
