The Lifelong Learning Institute (LLI) will host a “What has the Constitution Wrought” learning program on Tuesday from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The event will take place in the Holmes Student Center and those who wish to attend must purchase a ticket online at the NIU website.

The cost of admission is $85 per person.

The course will discuss the history and criticisms of the Supreme Court, covering topics such as abortion, segregation and education in the United States. The course will also examine the Electoral College and the steps needed to eliminate the College.

Joe Grush, former Professor and Chair of Psychology at NIU and Associate and Acting Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, will convene the event. The LLI is a non-competitive group of individuals, primarily aged 50 or older, who enjoy gathering together and learning about their combined interests. The LLI welcomes all who want to learn just for the fun of it.

No background information on the Supreme Court or Electoral College is needed to attend this course. For more information, contact the LLI at LLI@niu.edu.
