Board of Regents co-sponsors final Policy Challenges for Iowa discussion series
The Board of Regents, in collaboration with the University of Iowa Public Policy Center and College of Law, is sponsoring the Policy Challenges for Iowa Discussion Series to highlight divergent but compelling voices on important issues impacting public policy and our communities.
The series, which began September 22, 2021 with a discussion on free speech and social media and continued October 14 with a discussion on the future of the Democratic Party, concludes November 10 at 7:30 p.m. in the Old Capitol Senate Chambers with a discussion on the future of the Republican Party.
Discussion will touch on alternative views on the challenges facing the Republican Party and the impact internal party discussions will have on policy and the impact President Trump has had on the prioritization of issues within the party.
Keynote speakers include Republican Party political consultant and founding/managing partner of FP1 Strategies Terry Nelson, Alan Abramowitz, professor of political science at Emory University and former Iowa 3rd District Representative David Young.
Featured topics include how policy views of “Trump supporters” differ from those of traditional conservatives, how those differences affect various Republican Party constituencies and the 2022 midterm elections, and the 2024 presidential election.
The event is open to the public and free to attend. The discussion also will be streamed live on the Iowa Public Policy Center’s YouTube channel.
