A new exhibit, You’ve Got Mail, runs through August 30, 2019, on the lower level of Criss Library. During his twelve years representing Nebraska in the U.S. Senate, Chuck Hagel and his staff received a truly impressive amount of mail, phone calls, and emails. This exhibit explores how and why people in Nebraska and the rest of the U.S. contacted Senator Hagel. In order to process and reply to these contacts, staff members found a way to organize the daily intake, analyze constituent’s opinions, and keep track of who was reaching them, how, and for what reason. In addition to sharing views and opinions on current events, constituents sent gifts, requested information and assistance, and sought meetings with Hagel and his staff. These are just some of the many and varied reasons people wrote to Senator Hagel. Have you ever contacted your senator?
