Perspectives on Impeachment

Dickinson College will host a panel of experts to discuss the subject of impeachment from legal, political, ethical and media perspectives. “Perspectives on Impeachment,” will take place Wednesday, Nov. 6, at 7 p.m. in the Anita Tuvin Schlechter (ATS) Auditorium.

In response to the current impeachment inquiry by the U.S. House of Representatives, a panel of Dickinson professors will address the multifaceted nature of the implications of such proceedings.
