Nov. 8: Midterm election discussion

Political strategists Megan Winters and Melanie Brewer will discuss the success of female candidates in the midterm election at 5 p.m. in Metzgar Center. The program, titled "Year of the Woman?" is sponsored by the Public Policy Fund at Penn State Behrend.

The Public Policy Fund was created to bring together a diversity of perspectives to inform public policy decisions that affect the Erie region and similar communities in the Great Lakes and Ohio River Basin areas. Drawing on the expertise of faculty members, the fund endeavors to:

  • Research policy solutions of importance to the Erie region,
  • Increase the policy research available to decision-makers,
  • Emphasize the importance of research-driven policy decisions, and
  • Promote interdisciplinary approaches to policy.

The fund is based in the political science program of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences.
