September 25-27—Congress to Campus Events
Two former members of the U.S. House of Representatives visited Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) for a “Congress to Campus” events to engage students and provide inspiration leading to greater democratic participation. The visit of Bill Enyart, a Democrat from Illinois, and Ron Sarasin, a Republican from Connecticut, was arranged through the Congress to Campus program of the U.S. Association of Former Members of Congress. The Congress to Campus visit was presented by Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health, and School of Public and Environmental Affairs.

The students asked several questions regarding philanthropy and government during their discussion, with a bit of a lively discussion on the current presidential race.

“Congratulations, Tyrone! And it is worth noting this is the second time in three years a faculty member at LFSOP has won this award. Katie Herrold did two years ago. As one who was privileged to know Gabe Rudney, I think he would be very impressed with the caliber of the faculty LFSOP is developing!”
Leslie Lenkowsky, Professor
“Great points, Les! And let's also note again that Gabe was one of the early visitors who helped us conceive the research agenda for the Center on Philanthropy. So great to have the next generation connect with him.”

“Congratulations on this national recognition which is so well-deserved! Due to this national honor you are receiving, I also am excited by the prospect of your research – and the lessons you teach through Madame Walker’s story – expanding and strengthening philanthropic knowledge and practice within our increasingly diverse society.
