Lee University’s Center for Responsible Citizenship will host its 7th Annual Symposium on Civic Virtue and Thought Friday and Saturday, Oct. 7-8. Its theme this year is “Institutions and Inheritance,” which will explore the role of tradition and institutions in framing political desires and discourse. 

“We sometimes forget that the right thing must be done in the right way,” said CRC Director Thomas Pope. “Our desire for immediate perfection sometimes leads us to buck against those institutions and traditions that slow us down. This symposium will highlight how these apparent obstacles can benefit us, helping us to reframe the good as something shared across time.” 

The symposium will consist of several smaller discussion seminars, as well as a public keynote by Dr. Diana Schaub, professor of political science at Loyola University. Dr. Schaub recently authored a book on three speeches by Abraham Lincoln, titled “His Greatest Speeches: How Lincoln Moved the Nation,” that addresses the challenges of rebuilding faith in American institutions.

The keynote lecture is free and open to the public and will be at 5 p.m. on Lee’s campus in the Humanities Building, Room 104. 

This symposium series is possible thanks to the support of the Jack Miller Center and members of the broader Cleveland community.
