The event is hosted by the CSU Straayer Center for Public Service Leadership and The Concord Coalition, a national non-partisan organization advocating for responsible fiscal policy. Attendees (including students, business leaders, and elected officials) will be challenged to balance a budget as “members of Congress”, and will receive a primer on the federal budget including sources and uses of revenue, and how debt is accumulated or paid off. Each group will have a guidebook with close to 100 policy options that raise or lower spending across various categories, along with the impact of making those choices. Each group then determines a budget for a ten-year window and reports out to the main group.

  •    “A Korean War Retrospective: A Conflicted Legacy of Misunderstandings, Memories and Memorials,” Lecture by Former Director of the Truman Presidential Library and Former President of the National Council on Public History Michael Devine*

Tuesday, September 10 / 6-7 pm / Clark A 103

Korea is often referred to as the “Forgotten War.” In the pantheon of American wars, it is overshadowed by World War II, which ended just five years earlier, and eclipsed by America’s long and painful involvement in Vietnam. Yet the Korean War of 1950-1953 brought about profound and lasting changes in the United States and East Asia. Recent decades have witnessed an extraordinary reexamination of the war and its legacy, as world leaders struggle to maintain East Asia’s unprecedented peace and prosperity amidst the ever present tension on the Korean peninsula.
