The President’s Performing Arts & Speakers Program has been created to enhance the vitality of MSU and to expand the intellectual engagement of our University students, faculty and staff, and community. The Initiative is comprised of three components: the Presidential Lecture Series, the MSU Speaker’s Bureau and presidential co-sponsorship of campus intellectual and creative events.
This program is supported by the Office of the President, the Division of Student Success and the MSU Fund for Excellence. Co-support is provided by the academic colleges.
Presidential Lecture Series
The Presidential Lecture Series offers an excellent opportunity to attract renowned speakers, performers and scholars to campus while drawing interdisciplinary groups together.
The Presidential Lecture Series consists of at least one lecture or performance each academic year. Each event is coordinated with and co-sponsored by an academic college or the Division of Student Success, and is intended to have a broad appeal and stimulate discussion across the University and community.
