Is there a future for political parties in the United States?
Join us on Monday, March 26th at 5pm in the Freeman Room for a discussion with Howard Dean, former DNC Chairman, presidential candidate, six-term governor, and physician. Dean currently works as a part-time independent consultant focusing on the areas of health care, early childhood development, alternative energy, and the expansion of grassroots politics around the world.
Dean left office in Vermont to run for President in 2003, where he implemented innovative fundraising strategies such as the use of the Internet. As chairman of the Democratic National Committee, Dean created and implemented the “50 State Strategy.” He is credited with helping Democrats make historic gains in 2006 and 2008.
Dean currently serves on the Board of the National Democratic Institute, a democracy-building organization chaired by former Secretary of State Madeline Albright. He teaches a course at the Jackson Institute at Yale University, Hofstra, and the University of Vermont.
All members of the community – students, faculty, and staff – are encouraged to attend. Dinner will be provided.
This event is sponsored by the Community and Multicultural Development Office.
