“A community of scholars like ours cannot have too rich or varied a flow of interesting and illuminating visitors,” said President Mitch Daniels. “I hope this new series will augment the intellectual traffic already coming through campus in a way that enhances its breadth of content as well as its frequency and reach among our students and faculty.”
Todd Wetzel, director of Purdue Convocations, which is assisting the Office of the President with the series, said, “This series provides us yet another opportunity to bring programming to the Purdue community that is both thought-provoking and inspiring. We are pleased to be able to host these outstanding talented speakers.”
