Emmitsburg, Maryland – Mount St. Mary’s University welcomes former U.S. Congressmen the Honorable Dan Miller (R-FL) and the Honorable Martin Lancaster (D-NC) to campus on Wednesday, March 14 as part of the Mount’s Congress to Campus program.
The Congressmen will spend two days on campus visiting classes, meeting with students, faculty and the Mount community to share insights into Capitol Hill and the issues Congress currently face.
“I am looking forward to my visit to Mount St. Mary’s University during this very exciting and important 2012 election,” says former Congressmen Dan Miller. “Our goal is to explain how Congress can and should work and to encourage students to enter public service. I look forward to some challenging questions and discussions during my visit.”
The program includes Participatory Democracy: Making My Voice Count, a presentation and panel discussion with both Congressmen and Chairman of the Political Science Department, Michael Towle. It will take place the evening of the 14th at 7:00 p.m. in Knott Auditorium and is moderated by Director of the Pre-Law Program, Ed Egan and Director of Leadership Institute, Paul Manuel. The presentation is free and open to the public.
“This is a great chance for students to hear about the experiences of an elected official, who no longer has to be concerned about being re-elected,” says Professor Ed Egan. “We are looking forward to some enlightening and unvarnished discussions.”
Congress to Campus at the Mount is sponsored by the Pre-Law program, Political Science Department and the Leadership Institute.
