In a universitywide initiative, the Office of the Provost and the Office of Student Affairs will be hosting debate watch events and panel discussions on civil discourse one hour prior to the presidential debate. These moderated events will take place over Zoom.

These are non-advocacy events, with a chance to hear from panelists and engage in discussions about civil discourse informed by the USCCB document, Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship: A Call to Political Responsibility from the Catholic Bishops of the United States.

Each panelist will speak for 5-10 minutes from their own context about civil discourse in this democratic republic. The floor will then be opened up for dialogue with the event concluding by 7:50 p.m., giving everyone time to watch the debate on their own.

Save the date for the final event. Panelist details will be shared soon.
