In an effort to cut through the seemingly endless stream of news we're faced with, our office periodically releases short discussion guides, called "Making Sense of..."  These short pieces are meant 1) as a way to become quickly acquainted with an issue, 2) see what people are reading on the topic, and 3) as a way to begin a conversation, using some discussion framing questions.  These guides are meant for use by anyone, but in particular we encourage use by college faculty (in classrooms and in disciplinary clubs) and in co-curricular campus settings.

This conversation guide, created in March 2017, focuses on the implications of the Trump administration’s budget proposal.
