I appreciated Joshua Park’s Sept. 29 Thursday Opinion column describing partisan troubles during Harvard’s 2022 Summer in Washington program [“We college students are partly to blame for our broken politics”]. I directed the program’s last iteration in 2019. In that summer, participants met with figures from across the political spectrum. Students enjoyed meeting Clinton and Trump advisers and politically diverse members of Congress. We packed as many young (generally left-leaning) people as could fit into the room to hear Nicholas Eberstadt of the American Enterprise Institute.
