The President’s Performing Arts and Speakers Program (PASP) was created to enhance the vitality of MSU and to expand the intellectual engagement of the University’s students, faculty and staff, and community. The Presidential Lecture Series, a component of PASP, offers an opportunity to attract renowned speakers, performers and scholars to campus while drawing interdisciplinary groups together. The 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 and the Division of Student Life, and is intended to have a broad appeal and stimulate discussion across the University and community.
