155 Dwinelle Hall


Homecoming 2016

The 2016 campaign has led to major stresses on the leadership and ideology of the two major political parties in the United States. The fundamental terms of engagement for candidates, voters, elected officials, party leaders, economic interests and social movements may be undergoing historical shifts. Will political life become more fragmented, leading to the rise of new parties? Join us for a discussion moderated by Richard “Dick” Beahrs (‘68), to explore what has changed, and what is unlikely to change, in future national elections.

  • Lisa García Bedolla, Chancellor's Professor in the Graduate School of Education and Travers Department of Political Science
  • Bill Whalen, Hoover Institute Research Fellow
