The goal of political engagement continues to drive Harvard’s Institute of Politics (IOP). In an emotional ceremony marking the IOP’s 40th anniversary at the John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum on Friday night (Sept. 29), Sen. Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts declared that the idealism President Kennedy represented for one generation of Americans lives on through the institute’s continued involvement with subsequent generations.
