Pizza and Policy: Engaging Students in Political Discussion

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Students increasingly desire civic engagement with their collegiate experience according to research done through the Higher Education Research Institute. These students, however, may lack the objective information about issues that they want to engage with. Pizza and Policy is a new event series run by undergraduate fellows at Simpson College's Culver Public Policy Center. At these events, an in house expert, undergraduate or faculty, gives a half hour, scholarly presentation on a hot topic policy issue with time for discussion afterwards. The Center provides pizza and beverages to facilitate a relaxed, attractive atmosphere. This event series aims to increase informed political discussion around issues that students care about. Success will be monitored over the semester through surveys, student interviews, and social media monitoring. During this presentation, steps to replicate this program will be shown as well as an evaluation and overview of the Pizza and Policy events hosted during the 2016 spring semester.
