Presidential Lecture Series


Launched in 2014, the Presidential Lecture Series aims to engage Purdue students and the broader community with inspiring ideas, courageous leadership, and models of civic engagement and civil discourse.  The next Presidential Lecture Series event will include the discussion “Columnist Peggy Noonan on Culture, History & Life in Our Times” featuring Peggy Noonan.

During this Oct. 17 event, Purdue President Mitch Daniels will moderate an hour-long discussion alongside Peggy Noonan. The event is at 6 p.m. in Stewart Center’s Fowler Hall and is FREE and open to the public and available via a livestream on Purdue’s YouTube channel. This event is sponsored by the President’s Council.


For the most effective promotion, this content package provides promotional assets for the lecture series itself as well as event-specific assets. Assets will be added to the package as more events are added to the calendar. However, the series graphics (those noting “Presidential Lecture Series”) are evergreen and can be used in general promotion of the lecture series, no matter the event.

  • Suggested social media language
