The School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership hosts a number of public events each academic year designed to engage the community, as well as ASU students, staff and faculty on the pressing issues of our time.
Through our Civic Discourse Project, produced in partnership with the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, and the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law, the school is able to bring in top minds in civics, academics and public thought for in-person dialogues as well as a regularly aired TV show on Arizona PBS.
Additionally, all of our public talks are free and open to the public. They are also available for viewing on our website below. Search by academic year, by speaker series or just click "Browse" to view all of our videos.
On January 22, The School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership welcomed Peter Myers and Angela Dillard as part of our Signature Series honoring Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. Myers and Dillard spoke about the Civil Rights Movement and how it was marked by an intellectual and ideological diversity that incorporated a wide range of perspectives in debates about the nature of citizenship and the “proper” strategies for civil rights activism.
