Pardee Center Presence at University of Denver’s Pioneer Symposium: Politics and Service

Date: 
2016

On Veterans Day 2016 (November 11), Pardee Center Director Jonathan Moyer joined other faculty, high-ranking military officials and alumni guests at the University of Denver’s Pioneer Symposium. The theme of this session, “Politics and Service,” was designed to honor military service and explore critical policy issues our nation faces today. A panel discussion moderated by Korbel School dean Ambassador Christopher Hill opened the afternoon, followed by faculty break-out sessions and a Veterans Day celebration and exploration of mental health services, disability compensations and other legal needs of the men and women who have served in the military. Professor Moyer’s session, entitled “Forecasting Failure: Exploring the Historical Accuracy of Predictive Models of Political Instability,” helped attendees think about framing uncertainty while practicing the art and science of long-term forecasting.
