Lugar and Hamilton to discuss civility

Two retired political leaders – one Republican and one Democratic – will visit USI this week to talk about civility in politics.

University President Linda Bennett will moderate the one-hour discussion between Former U.S. Senator Richard Lugar and Former U.S. Congressman Lee Hamilton.

It’s set for Wednesday evening at 6:30 in USI’s Carter Hall. It’s free and open to the public, and audience members will be encouraged to ask questions.

The event will also be broadcast live on WNIN FM.

Lugar is president of the Lugar Center, which focuses on food and aid around the world, reducing weapons of mass destruction, and bi-partisan governance.

Hamilton, who grew up in Evansville, is director of the Center on Congress at Indiana University.

Both Hamilton and Lugar have received the presidential Medal of Freedom.

The discussion of civility comes during a presidential election that many have described as anything but civil.
