Event Description:
April Business Before Business Breakfast
Ruth Mandel   Eagleton Institute-cropped

Speaker:  Ruth Mandel, Ph.D.
Director, Eagleton Institute
Topic:  Politics 2017 - A Teachable Moment

Observing and teaching from my perch at the Eagleton Institute of Politics in the months since the November 2016 national election has been challenging and exhilarating.  Our students, colleagues and constituents have never been more focused on politics and government, more concerned, confused, interested, involved.  They are among the millions of citizens for whom this unprecendented political moment presents daunting and exciting opportunities to engage with and influence the American democratic experiment.  - Ruth Mandel

Ruth Mandel has been the director of the Eagleton Institute of Politics since 1995.  During her tenure, Eagleton has launched new research and education initiatives in youth political engagement, immigrant political behavior, governors and state executive leadership, science and politics, and ethics in government.  Eagleton's education programs for Rutgers graduate and undergraduate students have grown, and the Institute has expanded its state and national outreach and service with visible public programs and social media communications.

As a founder and director of Eagleton's Center for American Women and Politics (CAWP) from 1971 through 1994, Mandel built a national center with multi-faceted research/education/public service and information programs about women's political participation, a subject previously unexplored.  She remains affiliated with CAWP as a senior scholar, teaching and writing about leadership, with emphasis on U.S. women's political history, women as political candidates and officeholders, women's political networks, and the "gender gap."
