SUMMARY: This Madison Vision Series event, Celebrating the Electoral Process through Civil Discourse, will take place on Nov. 2 at 3:30 p.m. in Memorial Hall Auditorium.


In an election season where the issues have frequently been clouded by controversy, the Office of the President and Madison Institutes are bringing Josh Zive and Daveed Gartenstein-Ross, guest experts with opposing political leanings, to campus to debate. This Madison Vision Series event, Celebrating the Electoral Process through Civil Discourse, will take place on Nov. 2 at 3:30 p.m. in Memorial Hall Auditorium.

Zive is a senior counsel with Bracewell Law and Gartenstein-Ross is senior fellow with the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies. As the election approaches, they will speak on current issues, especially national security, immigration and cybersecurity. This will be an excellent opportunity to become more informed before heading to the polls and will be an example of meaningful dissent and civil discourse.

This event is free and open to the public and will be moderated by Cynthia Bauerle, dean of the College of Science and Mathematics.
