The 2018 Chairman’s Circle Luncheon was a remarkable event, featuring an engaging conversation with the National Institute for Civil Discourse about the current tenor of public dialogue regionally and nationally, and how NICD and the Ruckelshaus Center’s work help us get from mutual recriminations to multi-party solutions.
Thanks to TVW’s filming you can view the whole event here on TVW.!
The mission of the William D. Ruckelshaus Center is to help parties involved in complex public policy challenges in the State of Washington and the Pacific Northwest tap university expertise to develop collaborative, durable and effective solutions.
The Center envisions a future in which government leaders, policy makers, and citizens routinely employ tools of collaborative decision making to design, conduct and implement successful public policy processes.
We are a joint effort of Washington State University (hosted and administered by the WSU Extension) and the University of Washington (hosted through the Daniel J. Evans School of Public Policy and Governance). Building on the unique strengths of these two institutions, the Center applies university resources and knowledge towards solving challenging public policy issues.
Collaboration, consensus, neutrality, knowledge, education, inquiry, and civility.
