Quigley Town Halls


The Quigley Town Hall (QTH) was established by the CPP in 2013. The idea was to provide the campus and the community multiple, on-going opportunities to learn about and explore contemporary policy issues, debates, and key events.  The QTH series is run entirely by CPP Fellows; they develop the topics that are to be explored in the series, choreograph the events, and arrange for policy experts to help facilitate the discussions. We try to hold one QTH per month during the academic year.

Recent Quigley Town Halls have focused on the following topics:

The No Labels movement

The TEA Party and the GOP

National Security and the South China Sea

Religion and Politics

The Occupy Movement

Syria and Sanctions


Corporate Social Responsibility

Prison Reform

Ferguson and Black Lives Matter Movement

The Rise of ISIS

The Senate Torture Report



Media and Primaries

Race and Gender Dynamics in the Election

Wealth Inequality: The Widening Rhetorical and Political Gap

The Zika Virus
