The McConnell Center at the University of Louisville has announced four free, public events as part of its spring 2017 “Promises and Perils of the American Presidency” public lecture series.
All events begin at 6 p.m. in Ekstrom Library’s Chao Auditorium, lower level.
The nonpartisan McConnell Center, created at U of L in 1991, prepares Kentucky’s top undergraduate students to become future leaders; offers civic education programs for teachers, students and the public; and conducts strategic leadership development for the U.S. Army.
In the past 25 years, the center has awarded more than $3.5 million in scholarship awards to more than 200 students. Its lectures, books, studies and conferences have garnered international attention, with the American Council of Trustees and Alumni recently naming the Center “an oasis of excellence in higher education.”
Launched in 1995, we are the only organization that works with alumni, donors, trustees, and education leaders across the United States to support liberal arts education, uphold high academic standards, safeguard the free exchange of ideas on campus, and ensure that the next generation receives an intellectually rich, high-quality college education at an affordable price.Discover More
