Hobby Symposium Series


Given the importance of the 2018 election, the 2020 census and 2021 redistricting on future national and state public policy, the Hobby School of Public Affairs at the University of Houston is convening a symposium to explore the 2018 election results and their likely impact on the direction of American politics. Topics include the implications of the midterm results on the census process as it ramps up for the 2020 count and what this means for the remapping of America in 2021. Featuring leading academics and journalists, the symposium will be held at the University of Houston-Downtown on Friday, December 7, from 9AM-4PM. More


The Hobby School of Public Affairs is proud to launch its symposium series. The symposium series was created:

  • To provide a platform for the community, business leaders, and public officials to discuss pertinent topics surrounding legislation and public policy.

  • To spur innovative thinking and questioning to effectively change public policy.
