Former Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis will explore the results of the 2012 election and their impact on the nation during a special presentation on Tuesday, Feb. 19, at California State University, Northridge.

His presentation is scheduled to take place at 7 p.m. in the Grand Salon of the University Student Union on the east side of the campus of Zelzah Avenue.

“Michael Dukakis is a former presidential nominee, has been a governor and is a professor of public policy,” said CSUN political science professor Lawrence Becker. “He is gong to talk about the governing in the wake of the 2012 elections and governing in a polarized Washington.”

Michael Dukakis was governor of Massachusetts from 1975 to 1979, and again from 1983 to 1991. In 1988, he was the Democratic nominee for president of the United States. Since leaving office in 1991, he has been a distinguished professor of political science at Northeastern University and a visiting professor in the School of Public Affairs at UCLA.

Dukakis’ appearance is sponsored by the Department of Political Science in CSUN’s College of Social and Behavioral Sciences.

Seating for the event, which is free and open to the public, is limited so reservations are recommended. To make a reservation or for more information, call (818) 677-3488.

CSUN’s Department of Political Science offers a rich curriculum in which most aspects of the discipline and areas of the globe are covered. Given the depths of its faculty’s expertise, its strengths lie in the areas of American politics, international relations, comparative politics, political theory and public law.
