The UW-Marathon County campus welcomes its newest addition, the David R. Obey Civic Resource Center. Located at the UW Center for Civic Engagement, a grand opening will take place in the afternoon on Wednesday, September 3rd.
The David R. Obey Civic Resource Center will serve as a public access point for Congressman Obey's congressional papers and artifacts. Obey's intent was that his archives be integrated into active learning opportunities for Wisconsin citizens.
David R. Obey Civic Resource Center's mission is to educate and encourage young people to become knowledgeable and active participants in a healthy democratic society.
Additional goals of the center are to inspire students to learn about public policy, be able to discuss issues, laws and policies with civility. Research opportunities will be provided for students and members of the community through using original congressional archive material.
