The William S. Cohen Lecture Series

The William S. Cohen Lecture Series provides a setting for public discussion of current affairs and raises awareness about the diverse research material in the collection. The topic of the series changes each year, thus involving faculty, students, and community members from various disciplines.

Here is a list of the distinguished guests that we have had the pleasure of welcoming to the University of Maine since the inaugural lecture in 1998.
