It's been one year since President Donald Trump took office after the most surprising and controversial election in American history. Has the Trump presidency lived up to its expectations, good or bad?

That question will be discussed by a diverse panel of undergraduate students, graduate students and faculty from across the political spectrum at the University of Colorado Boulder.

The panel discussion, titled “Trump’s America: One Year Later,” is scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 24, at 5:30 p.m. in Hale Science Room 270 on campus.   

The event, which is sponsored by the CU Boulder Center for Western Civilization, Thought & Policy (CWCTP), includes the following panelists: 

  • Michaele L. Ferguson, associate professor of political science, faculty associate of women and gender studies
  • Eric Alston, scholar in residence, finance division, and faculty director, Hernando de Soto Capital Markets Program at Leeds School of Business
  • Caroline Grego, Ph.D. candidate in history
  • Blake K. Herron, law student and president of the Colorado chapter of the Federalist Society
  • Katiana Hutchinson, CWCTP undergraduate fellow and former organizer for Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign in Cuyahoga County, Ohio
  • Alex Vela, CWCTP undergraduate fellow and president of CU College Republicans

The event is free and open to the public. Registration is recommended.
