Public Policy Forum was formed in 2018 as a pan-University forum for improving the quality of teaching and scholarship at Lindenwood through diversity of thought, respectful disagreement, and mutual understanding. It is coordinated by Dr. Dale Walton, professor of international relations and senior research fellow in the Hammond Institute.
The agora was the central marketplace of ancient Greece where politics, religion, philosophy, art, and oratory flourished. This marketplace was essential to its democracy and development of ideas. Where is the modern agora? We aspire to bring a semblance of it to the Lindenwood campus.
