Baker Institute Student Forum: Grade the President

With the 2010 midterm election rapidly approaching, the Baker Institute Student Forum presents a Rice University student-led discussion on the first two years of the Obama administration. Four students from the Rice University Young Democrats and four students from the Rice University Conservatives Forum will evaluate President Barack Obama in four major policy areas. The audience will be encouraged to participate in the conversation through a question-and-answer session with the panelists, and students also will discover ways to become politically involved at Rice.
