The Great DebateSen. George McGovern once said that “debate is my one true talent.” The McGovern Center is currently working to find all those DWU students who have a gift for persuasive speech and forensic debate and connect them to the Center’s debate club. These students will also be part of an upcoming Great Debate series set to hit campus fall of 2014.
More information about DWU’s Debate Club Coming Soon!
McGovern ConferenceEach year DWU hosts a conference to honor the legacy of George McGovern. Past Conferences have included impressive speakers covering a range of topics including: hunger, environmental issues, political research, and more.
This year, the McGovern Center is partnering with the Kelley Center for Entrepreneurship to offer the “Leadership, Innovation, and Social Change Conference.” A highlight of this year’s conference will be the “Dialogue for Action Sessions,” facilitated by DWU students and designed to engage the audience in thinking about how to take information from the speaking topics and turn them into action steps!
