DelVal to host a forum about the 2016 Presidential Election

Oct 24, 2016

The history, policy and society major and the liberal arts department at Delaware Valley University are hosting a discussion about the 2016 Presidential Election. The event, which is this semester's Multicultural Forum, will be held Wednesday, Nov. 2 at 4:30 p.m. in the Life Sciences Building auditorium. 

The Multicultural Forum will focus on the potential impact of Millennial voters (defined by the Pew Research Center as those born after 1980) on the upcoming election. According to the Pew Research Center, the majority of eligible voters are Millennials or Generation Xers (those born from 1965 to 1980). However, in past elections the Baby Boomers (born from 1946 to 1964) and older generations have cast the majority of votes. 

Guest speaker Dr. Jeffrey Carroll, will present, "The 2016 Presidential Election: A Millennial Call to Action?" at the event. 

Dr. Carroll is an assistant professor of political science at Chestnut Hill College where he specializes in: American politics, state and local government, urban politics and public policy, urban migration and social geography, global cities and youth civic engagement. He earned his Ph.D. in political science from Temple University in 2013. 

The Delaware Valley University Biannual Multicultural Forum encourages active involvement in the multicultural, global community. Through this series, DelVal provides a venue for critical discussion of current world affairs. The events provide students and community members with the opportunity to learn about global events and trends that shape modern societies.
