|About Educate '08|
Hofstra University President Stuart Rabinowitz announced the launch of Educate '08: Dialogue, Democracy and the ’08 Debates, an unprecedented educational effort that will engage not only students and faculty but also the public in a year-long series of conferences, events and lectures about the 2008 election, politics and presidential history.
"In November 2007, Hofstra University received word from the Commission on Presidential Debates that we would have the privilege of hosting the third and final presidential debate of the 2008 election, on October 15, 2008,” said President Rabinowitz. “When the CPD announced that Hofstra would serve as a debate site, we pledged to build on our already rich history of internationally renowned conferences, including Hofstra’s eleven presidential conferences. We are creating a comprehensive, in-depth series of lectures, academic coursework, events and public programs about the issues of this election, history and politics while encouraging engagement in the democratic process."
