Two Concordia University Wisconsin Associate Professors offered their political views during a recent taping of Milwaukee Public Television’s 4th Street Forum. Dr. Jeff Walz, associate professor of political science and Dr. James Burkee, associate professor of history and economics were part of a panel on the show that originally aired October 8th on MPTV. The focus of the discussion was political polarization throughout the country.

CUW also had a strong presence during the taping as Associate Nursing Professor, Kim Whitmore and a large number of nursing students were part of the audience and discussion.

The 4th Street Forum broadcast is a weekly, nonpartisan program, which promotes public discussion of political and social issues that are of concern to Milwaukee and Wisconsin communities.
