Speakers include local, national, and international politicians, ambassadors, lobbyists, activists, and academics.
The Hinckley Institute of Politics was founded with a mission to engage students in governmental, civic, and political processes; promote a better understanding and appreciation of politics; and train ethical and visionary students for public service. Most Hinckley Forums are held in Orson Spencer Hall, Room 255, on the University of Utah campus, and are free and open to the public.
Ross Chambless has reported and produced stories for public radio on political, environmental, and science related issues in Utah since 2001.
