Back to All Events
Map of Ukraine

What does the Russian attack on Ukraine, and the response of the Ukrainian people and the global community mean for democracy at home and apoad? How might the current crisis in Ukraine and its possible trajectories impact today's students of higher education?

Join students and community members from across the Big Ten Conference for a live virtual conversation Ukraine: Implications for Democracy in the U.S. and Globally, with Senate Foreign Relations Committee members Ben Cardin (D-MD) and Rob Portman (R-OH). The event is sponsored by the Big Ten Collaboration on 21st Century Democracy and moderated by Dr. Nancy Gallagher, Director of the Center for International Security Studies at Maryland, and Dr. Charles Wise, Founding Director of the John Glenn School of Public Affairs. Students will have an opportunity to submit questions to the Senators both before the event and after the roundtable discussion.
