The 2012-13 Notre Dame Forum, “A More Perfect Union: The Future of America’s Democracy,” will present a series of events throughout the academic year that will explore profound questions about the state of the U.S. political system and its capacity to deal with the rapidly-changing domestic and international challenges it faces.
The Forum discussion will begin with a panel presentation titled “Conviction and Compromise: Being a Person of Faith in a Liberal Democracy,” on Sept. 4 (Tuesday) at 7 p.m. in the Leighton Concert Hall of Notre Dame’s DeBartolo Performing Arts Center. The event will feature some of our nation’s most prominent religious authorities. The panel event is free, but tickets are required. Ticketing begins on August 29 (Wednesday). Visit forum.nd.edu for more details.
Established by Father Jenkins in 2005, the Notre Dame Forum has brought leading authorities to campus to discuss substantive issues of the day. Past forum topics have included the global marketplace and its impact on the common good, immigration, sustainability, global health and K-12 education.
