On Sunday, May 4, Senator Richard G. Lugar will give a talk entitled “Indiana and the World” at 7 p.m. at Indianapolis Civic Theatre on the Marian College campus. The event was open to the public at no charge; however, due to the overwhelming response, registration is now closed.
Senator Lugar’s talk is part of the Global Studies Speaker Series, organized by The Richard G. Lugar Franciscan Center for Global Studies. This is the first time Senator Lugar will speak at the college since it Marian College’s global studies center was renamed in his honor on December 9, 2007.
Senator Lugar is a longstanding advocate of United States global leadership, free trade, and a strong national defense. A Rhodes Scholar and former presidential candidate, he has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for his role in reducing the stockpile of nuclear weapons in the former Soviet Union. A fifth generation Hoosier and the longest serving United States senator in Indiana history, he is former chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
After the talk, there will be an audience question and answer session. For more information, contact Dr. Pierre Atlas, assistant professor of political science and director of The Richard G. Lugar Franciscan Center for Global Studies, at 317.955.6336 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
