Kent Library’s Spring 2012 Athenæum Series: Preparing the American Idol Generation for the Political Future: An Evaluation of Perceptions of Government and Politics, Present and Future.

Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

Despite growing up in an era where information has been more readily available than ever before, young Americans today are no more learned or skilled than their predecessors.  As the political world continues to evolve and shape their futures, it is imperative that we be able to assess their political and public affairs knowledge and concerns.  In this presentation, Dr. Will Miller and student presenters, Aaron Griffin and Zach Chinea, will examine what our students know about politics, what their fears are regarding our government and country as they move forward, and what the university can holistically do to better assure that we are graduating well-rounded political citizens.  The presentation takes place in Kent Library’s Sadie’s Place at noon on Wednesday, April 18, 2012.  Refreshments will be provided, and the presentation is open to all.

The Athenaeum Spring Series will present “Titanic: the Centennial” at noon on Wednesday, April 4, at Sadie’s Place in Kent Library.
