Former U.S. Sen. Olympia Snowe, now a senior fellow of the Bipartisan Policy Center, will discuss the ethical implications of the current political climate in a free public talk on Monday, March 26, at Duke University.
The 2018 Crown Lecture in Ethics, “Politics and Our Potential: Can Congress Rise to Meet Its Obligation to Govern?” will take place from 5:30 to 6:45 p.m. in the Fleishman Commons at Duke’s Sanford School of Public Policy. Parking is available in the public policy lot.
Snowe is the first and only woman to have served in both houses of a state legislature, and then both chambers of Congress. Snowe, a Republican, won the Maine U.S. Senate seat three times, serving from 1995 to 2013, and was the first woman to serve on the Senate Finance Committee.
The Crown Lecture in Ethics is made possible by a gift from Lester Crown and the Crown family and its purpose is to bring speakers to campus to discuss compelling ethical issues in the fields of art, science, medicine, business and policy.
The lecture is presented by the Sanford School of Public Policy and co-sponsored by POLIS: The Center for Political Leadership, Innovation, and Service. This event is part of the yearlong centennial celebration of the late Terry Sanford, Duke’s president from 1970-1985.
