The University of San Francisco is hosting an in-depth conversation about the Presidential Election late Thursday afternoon, where various political experts will attempt to move past the controversy in the race and delve into the nation’s serious issues.

The event is expected to be held from 3 to 4:30 p.m. in the Monihan Atrium at USF’s Gleeson Library on Golden Gate and Parker avenues. Speakers include politics and law professors as well as San Francisco republican chairman Jason Clark, according to a news release from the college.

The speakers will try and push the conversation beyond the theatrical narratives surrounding candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, instead focusing on questions like what will “the candidates do differently from President Obama to successfully achieve their goals?”

Speakers will also address voter turnout for people of color and millennials, as well as commentary on the media.

KQED Forum producer Judy Campbell will moderate the conversation.
