Top 10 Social Issues for the President’s First 100 Days
Be part of the national conversation in the first 100 days of the new Presidential Administration and Congress.
On January 20, 2017, the United States will inaugurate Donald Trump as its 45th President and open a new Congress. For the next four years, he will work with Congress to pass new laws and to implement social policies that will impact all of us. The beginning of a new presidential administration is a crucial time to talk about issues that are of concern and impact our lives and community.
In this MOOC, you will tap into the knowledge and ideas of the renowned University of Pennsylvania’s School of Social Policy & Practice (SP2) faculty to examine the most pressing social justice and policy issues facing the United States. You will connect with fellow learners to collaborate on other issues that may be impacting your life, your community, or the nation as a whole. Together, we will create a list of priorities for the newly elected President and Congress.
Along the way, our faculty will continually update the materials and make sure you know, in real time, what is unfolding on the national level on the issues presented here. We will post pertinent articles and thoughtful commentaries.
