Inspiration from the legacy of Senator Bob Dole

Offered by: Dole Institute of Politics
Program Description:
Inspiration from the legacy of Senator Bob Dole A native of a small town in Kansas, Senator Bob Dole is a celebrated veteran, legislator, and statesman. Learn how the Dole Institute of Politics at the University of Kansas honors his legacy of bipartisan leadership and inspires the leaders of tomorrow through public programming, museum, and archives. Politically known for his hard work and dedication, he was also able to keep his quick sense of wit: in a 1985 speech on the budget deficit, he quipped, “If you're hanging around with nothing to do and the zoo is closed, come over to the Senate. You'll get the same kind of feeling and you won't have to pay.”
