Published by USC Bedrosian Center on

by Anthony Orlando

Our American Discourse is a small piece of a big effort. We’re not the only ones trying to raise the level of public debate in this country. Take a walk through the Price School, and you’ll see room after room of scholars who genuinely care about the public interest. Stop at the Bedrosian Center, and you’ll find the people who have taken it upon themselves to engage directly with the public. That’s where I spend most of my days on campus, and it’s where I want to take you today to meet the leader who makes it all happen…

In this episode, Aubrey Hicks takes us inside the Bedrosian Center and their never-ending mission to bust open the doors of democracy and give us all a seat at the table.

Ms. Hicks is the Executive Director of the Bedrosian Center on Governance and the Public Enterprise at the University of Southern California. Prior to USC, she served as an educational program coordinator, an academic reference librarian, and the Managing Editor of the Journal of Public Policy.
