McConnell Center kicks off spring schedule with focus on the US presidency

The McConnell Center is hosting four free, public events as part of its spring 2017 “Promises and Perils of the American Presidency” public lecture series.
All events will begin at 6 p.m. ET in Ekstrom Library’s Chao Auditorium (Lower Level) - directions.

 The non-partisan McConnell Center, created at UofL 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.”
