Indiana University is congratulating one of the nation's most illustrious and distinguished statesmen and highly accomplished public servants, former U.S. Rep. Lee Hamilton, on his 90th birthday today.
Happy Birthday, Congressman Hamilton!
Our mission is to help prepare the next generation of citizens by working with educators to create programs that inform, inspire, and motivate students and to encourage civic participation to seek solutions to the many challenges that confront our nation today.
For our democracy to succeed, we need to teach each new generation how to become informed and engaged citizens.Congressman Lee H. Hamilton
Public Opinion on Congress 2020
Democrats and Republicans have different views about the importance of a free press, the political rights of political minorities, and an independent judiciary, according to a survey of public attitudes about Congress and public affairs conducted by Indiana University’s Center on Representative Government and Center on American Politics.
IU has been conducting its public survey since 2007, and the annual effort is overseen by Distinguished Professor of Political Science Edward G. Carmines, the Warner O. Chapman Professor of Political Science and a Rudy Professor at IU.
For me as a classroom instructor, the best thing was having students who were engaged...they wanted to learn more.Emily McCord, Batchelor Middle School
