President Donald Trump has taken action using executive orders on issues ranging from climate change and travel restrictions to education and bathroom use by transgender students in elementary schools. How do you understand executive orders and presidential power, including what the president can and cannot do according to the US Constitution? Join us for a workshop focused on library resources that explore how presidential power and the use of executive orders has changed since 2001.
This event will point students to library resources on presidential power and executive orders as they relate to a variety of issues, including climate change, immigration, international travel restrictions, teacher requirements and education, LGBTQ+ issues, health care, Planned Parenthood, and war and military spending. The event will have a social justice focus to provide participants with the opportunity to understand why these issues are important to particular groups rather than to engage in debate or discuss partisan politics.
The event will include a brief lecture by a graduate student from the Political Science Department.
We are offering two workshops to accommodate students’ class schedules:
- Tuesday, April 18, 4 -5:30 p.m. | Goldfield Room, 3rd Floor, Lied Library
- Tuesday, April 18, 5:30-7 p.m. | Goldfield Room, 3rd Floor, Lied Library
Open to all students, faculty, and staff. Light refreshments will be served.
