The 2020 election is being characterized by the media as a monumental moment in the history of the United States.

To unpack and make sense of what happens on Election Day, Purdue University Northwest (PNW) invites the public to join a virtual conversation with experts about what we learned and what will happen next.

A panel of PNW political science professors will provide their brief observations and answer questions during “Making Sense of the Election,” offered via Zoom from noon to 1:30 p.m. CST on Wednesday, Nov. 4.
