The Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics encourages civic engagement and inspires enlightened dialogue by bringing students, scholars, activists, policymakers, and communities together to discuss issues affecting Oregon, our nation, and the world. The Wayne Morse Center trains future public leaders to reach beyond partisan labels and conflicts to encourage fresh thinking and effective solutions to public problems. It carries on the fighting spirit and political independence of Oregon’s Senator Wayne Morse by promoting education and research to advance justice and democracy.
