June 21, 2022
4:45 PM – 5:45 PM

What does the Russian attack on Ukraine, and the response of the Ukrainian people and the global community, mean for democracy at home and abroad? How might the current crisis in Ukraine and its possible trajectories impact today's students of higher education?

 On Tuesday, June 21st, at 4:45 pm Eastern, students and community members from across the Big Ten Conference participated in a live virtual conversation, Ukraine: Implications for Democracy in the U.S. and Globally, with Senate Foreign Relations Committee members Ben Cardin (D-MD) and Rob Portman (R-OH). The event was sponsored by the Big Ten Collaboration on 21st Century Democracy and moderated by Dr. Nancy Gallagher, Director of the Center for International and Security Studies at Maryland at the University of Maryland School of Public Policy, and Dr. Charles Wise, Founding Director of the John Glenn School of Public Affairs at The Ohio State University.
