Next week, I hereby report with some excitement and a bit of embarrassment, will see the re-launch of Discovery's Center on Civic Leadership as Discovery's Chapman Center on Citizen Leadership. Hans Zeiger will continue to play a lead role.
I appreciate being so honored by my colleagues and intend to do all I can to support the center's mission. Discovery News has let me provide my views on current Discovery programs and related national and international affairs. It now is being re-christened, too, as a site called Chapman's News and Ideas. I will be the gatekeeper, but I hope to encourage a number of other Discovery fellows and friends to participate.
The site will continue to flag--to anticipate--news developments and to identify ideas that can make a difference to our form of representative government and to America's standing in the world. Some of these ideas are mine, derived from my career in local, state, national and international affairs. But many will be the amalgamation of others' insights that Discovery wants to promote and to show the connections among Discovery's varied programs--from the Center's main topics of citizen leadership, to science and culture, bioethics, economics (wealth, poverty and morality), education and foreign policy--through the connective Discovery Institute theme of "purpose, creativity and innovation."
Thanks for your support and I look forward to seeing you over at Chapman's News & Ideas.
We don't have enough staff to edit a comments section for the site, but feel free to express your thoughts to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
