September 11, 2001: The Day that Changed the World

Event Category:

September 5, 2023 - September 17, 2023

On display from September 5-17, 2023 at the Dole Institute of Politics

The Dole Institute will have special hours on Monday, September 11, 2023. We will be open from 12 pm – 4 pm.

The Dole Institute of Politics will be displaying a special poster exhibit commemorating the anniversary of the September 11 attacks. “September 11: The Day that Changed the World” reviews the events of the day, highlights personal experiences, and invites reflections from all patrons. This exhibit was developed by the 9/11 Memorial Museum with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Guests can also view our permanent memorial in Hansen Hall, featuring original beams from World Trade Center Tower One. These beams were salvaged and presented to the Dole Institute by Mayor Michael Bloomberg in appreciation for Senator Dole’s work with former President Bill Clinton to develop the Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund, which helped fund the education for children of 9/11 victims.
