The annual Peter J. Hoagland Integrity in Public Service Lecture is scheduled for Friday, Sept. 27, 2019, 5 P.M. - 6:30 P.M. in the Barbara Weitz Community Engagement Center. The lecture is sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences, the Political Science Department and the University of Nebraska Foundation.
Featured speakers are Walter Lukens, a national Republican political consultant and pollster, and national Democratic pollster Harrison Hickman. They will speak on their view of the 2020 Presidential Election.
The Peter J. Hoagland Lecture Series honors Hoagland, who served as Nebraska’s second district congressman from 1989 through 1995. Hoagland passed away in 2007 after a long fight with Parkinson’s disease. The lecture series was created in 2008 by Hoagland’s friend and former Chief of Staff, Jim Crounse, with a gift to the University of Nebraska Foundation.
Each year’s lecture features state and national leaders — leaders who prove the honor and integrity remain essential components in their service to our country.
The lecture occurs annually and alternates between the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) and the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO).
This year’s lecture is free and open to the public.
For questions or inquiries, please contact Paul Landow, PhD, at firstname.lastname@example.org or Joe Price, PhD at email@example.com or 402.554.2545.
