The Hauenstein Center is hosting their second biennial Character and the Presidency event, in partnership with The Peter F. Secchia Family, the Meijer Foundation, the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Foundation, and the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library & Museum.
The event will feature David Brooks, distinguished political commentator and New York Times columnist, alongside bestselling presidential historian Ronald C. White, for a conversation about the past, present, and future of the American presidency. Ambassador Peter Secchia will address why he felt the need to initiate a hard-hitting series on character in the presidency.
Questions from the livestream viewers will be sent to the speakers during the Q&A.
This event is hosted by the Hauenstein Center and the Common Ground Initiative at Grand Valley State University, and cosponsored by the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy
