The School of Media and Public Affairs is a convener, bringing together government leaders, distinguished journalists, leading academics and more to campus — from down the street at the White House and Capitol and around the world.

Our events provide a high-profile platform for thoughtful and balanced conversations that deliver unique insights and help chart a path forward for the issues our world faces, from the future of news to advancing civil discourse and healing partisan divides.
