Episode 31: Debates, Flies, and Political Engagement at the University of Utah

Co-hosts Jon Fansmith, Mushtaq Gunja, and Sarah Spreitzer talk about higher education policy developments in the week before the election, including how work on the COVID-19 relief bill has ground to a halt and the Trump administration’s effort to curb international student visas. Later they are joined by Jason Perry of the University of Utah’s Hinckley Institute of Politics, who talks about hosting the vice presidential debate earlier this month, getting students involved in the debate process, and how the university is promoting student engagement during the pandemic.
