3:11 p.m., Feb. 18, 2011----The University of Delaware School of Public Policy and Administration annually launches a contemporary issues lecture series that couples current hot topics in the nation with knowledgeable, esteemed experts to facilitate a platform for understanding the world in which we live. In past years, notable persons such as U.S. Sen. Thomas Carper and Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter have lectured for the series.
Congressman John Carney, an alumnus of the master's in public administration program, will deliver the first lecture on “The Green Energy Economy” on Tuesday, Feb. 22, at 5 p.m., in Room 104 Gore Hall.
According to Edward Freel, policy scientist in the Institute for Public Administration, the series is “an opportunity to meet, hear from and interact with practitioners and academics in a range of different issue areas.”
Guest lecturers include such notable public figures as Carney, former U.S. Senator Ted Kaufman, and former governor and U.S. Congressman Michael N. Castle.
Guest lecturers will cover a broad range of topics, from the economy, to the health care system, to the role of the U.S. Senate.
The lecture series consists of seven events:
- Feb. 22 -- “The Green Energy Economy,” U.S. Rep. John C. Carney.
- March 8 -- “Is the Senate Broken,” Ted Kaufman, former U.S. Senator from Delaware who also served for 19 years as chief of staff to Joe Biden.
- March 22 -- “Housing Policy after the Great Recession,” Jane Vincent, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Mid-Atlantic regional administrator.
- April 5 -- “Still Broken: Understanding the U.S. Health Care System,” Stephen M. Davidson, professor of health and policy management at the University of Boston School of Management.
- April 12 -- “New Governor's and their Potential to be Change Agents,” Fran Berry, Frank Sherwood Professor of Public Administration at Florida State University.
- April 19 -- “Does Culture Matter in Local Public Organizations,” James Hartmann, city manager of Alexandria, Va.
- May 3 -- “Reflections on Leadership,” Michael N. Castle, former Delaware governor and Congressman.
The lectures are free and open to the public. Lectures are scheduled to be held Tuesdays at 5 p.m. in Room 187 Graham Hall. Lecture locations are subject to change, and any changes will be posted at the School of Public Policy and Administration website. Following the lectures will be question and answer sessions with the speakers.
