Gardner-Webb University students are taking advantage of an opportunity to witness the democratic process in action by participating in several events as part of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., held Sept. 4 – 7. On Tuesday, political science majors and others joined GWU Assistant Professor Dr. Ben Gaskins for the Congressional Black Caucus Institute’s interactive summit “Ufuture – A Summit for Innovative Young Thinkers,” held at Johnson C. Smith University (JCSU). Gardner-Webb was one of 17 colleges and universities represented at the event, which was designed as a forum to provide students a chance to interact with congressional members, White House officials, and other local and regional leaders.
