• National Debt Dialogue

    ADP is excited to be partnering with Up to Us and Illinois State University, in conjunction with the Economic Literacy Project, to provide a virtual space for faculty, staff, and students from across the country to deliberate about the future of our economy.

    The National Debt Dialogue took place Tuesday, February 22, 2022, from 3 p.m.5 p.m. ET via Zoom. 

    Deliberative dialogues are guided conversations on a political or controversial topic that pushes beyond polarizing positions and provides a solution-focused approach to addressing the problem at hand. Participants were in smaller Zoom breakout rooms with students, faculty, and staff from campuses across the country. The conversation was guided by a trained facilitator using the NIFI/Up to Us issue guide. 

    Thank you to the following organizers and facilitators: Christine Bruckner (Illinois State University), Harriett Steinbach (Illinois State University), Christie Stanker (Up to Us), Rob Catlett (Emporia State University, Kan.), Bekah Selby (Emporia State University), Grace Allbaugh (Illinois State University), Joshua Crockett (Illinois State University), Willie Redmond (Southeast Missouri State University), Eric Morrow (Tarleton College, Texas), Dannetta Winters (University of Southern Mississippi), and Doris Geide-Stevenson (Weber State University, Utah).
