The talk will take place from 12pm-1:30pm on Thursday, March 21 in Odom 101.  Coffee and dessert will be served.  This event is free and open to the public.  If you require assistance relating to a disability, please contact the McLean Institute at (662) 915-2052 or e-mail mclean@olemiss.edu.

The Brookings Institution Press writes that “The Politics and Civics of National Service expertly evaluates the civic effects of national service policy in the context of political development in the United States.  At the same time, by emphasizing the programs’ effects on citizenship and civic engagement, this volume deepens our understanding of how programs can act as ‘public policy for democracy.'”  For a full description of the book, click here.
