Whatever the breadth and depth of their disagreements, President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney concur: the presidential election in 2012 gives voters a clear choice between two very different philosophies and policy approaches to a host of challenges facing the U.S. Whether the debate is over how to handle staggering debts, the anemic economy, foreign hot spots, or thorny cultural issues, the candidates present vastly different game plans for moving America forward. Experts from the community – Kevin Den Dulk, Paul Isely, Erika King, and Matt McLogan – will explore and debate the issues leading up to this historic election. Gleaves Whitney will moderate and add historic perspective.

The Hauenstein Center at Grand Valley State University
Inspired by Ralph Hauenstein, we seek to provide a platform for emerging leaders in all three major sectors of public life – business, government, and nonprofit. We promote civic engagement that (1) honors the Founders’ vision of a constitutional republic; (2) builds on existing democratic institutions that promote justice, freedom, opportunity, sustainable prosperity, and the rule of law; and (3) envisions the possibilities for creating better communities.
