Pritzker Fellow Doug Ducey on "Persistence, Persistence, Persistence: How To Make Monumental Reforms in the Face of Substantial Opposition"


(Current UChicago Students Only)


Monday, February 26

3:30-4:45 PM 


As an outsider to government, Governor Ducey made significant reforms during his eight years. George Will called him the "Most Successful 21st Century Governor.” But from school choice to tax reform to slashing the size and scope of government, these monumental reforms did not happen overnight or easily. Gov. Ducey faced organized opposition from entrenched interests, even within his own party. How did he get it done? What coalitions did he need to build? What lessons can this provide to other states, and even our federal government?


Pritzker Fellows seminars are off the record and open to current UChicago students only. Seating in the IOP Living Room is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
