Office of the Chancellor
Dear Readers: As I write this column in late January, the attention o the nation is becoming more and more ocused on thepresidential election in the all o this year. We’ve moved rom a seemingly endless string o debates among thecontenders or the Republican nomination to the season o primary elections. The eld has narrowed, and thepresidential election itsel seems much nearer and ar more real. With the ongoing Occupy protests, continuedstagnation in Congress, our armed orces still in the eld, the economy still in the doldrums and the rhetoricfying, things have really begun to sizzle.For us at DU this can mean only one thing: The rst presidential debate o 2012, to be held on campus Oct. 3, isnearly upon us. On that day and the days leading up to it, our university will be the epicenter o political lie inthe United States. Planning, undraising and programming all have accelerated dramatically, and the buzz amongthe campus community is growing day by day. Without question, the debate at DU will be a major national event. The audience in Magness Arena willbe exceeded by the more than 3,000 press and media personnel covering the event. All o the major newsorganizations will have individual stations on Carnegie Green during the days leading up to the debate. We’vebeen told that since it is the rst debate o the series, involving a sitting president and taking place at such a criticaltime or world and national aairs, the debate at DU may be the single highest-rated television program in all o 2012, surpassing even the Super Bowl. It will be an extraordinary opportunity to showcase the minds and heartso our wonderul students, the expertise o our tremendous aculty members and the beauty o our gloriouscampus.The debate also will provide an extraordinary opportunity to expose our students to democracy at work in America in a very “up close and personal” way. DU will host many programs or the campus community and thepublic over the next several months, including debates among student political groups, a distinguished speakersseries (already begun with this quarter’s installment o Bridges to the Future) and student-led discussion groups. A host o new academic programs will ocus on U.S. history, politics and people. On the day o the debate there will be a public event with speeches and music, culminating in a broadcast o the debate at many on-campuslocations. We’re also planning several watch parties or DU riends and supporters. I hope you will join the un byplanning a debate-themed event o your own, and that you will connect with our debate-planning group—ino-debate2012@du.edu—in doing so. You can learn about the estivities and programming at debate2012.du.edu, an online resource that aims to keep you up-to-date about everything rom debate-related cultural events to special courses we’re oering on politicaltopics. We’re hoping that the debate—o such key importance to our country—will also serve to knit us togetheras a community. When Oct. 3 dawns and the curtain rises on this transormational event, we hope you’ll help us make history.This is democracy in all its splendor. This is DU at its best—ront and center, committed to taking on the greatissues o the day and determined to give our students the experience o a lietime.
