Each Spring, the Dole Institute presents a series of programs focusing on a particular aspect of U.S. political leadership, typically the U.S. Presidency. These events feature nationally-known individuals, including public servants, historians, top strategists, award-winning journalists, and political operatives. This year’s Presidential Lecture Series, created and developed by award-winning presidential rhetoric scholar Dr. Robert Rowland, focuses on presidential speeches and rhetoric, from the greatest speeches, to the process of speechwriting, to changes in presidential rhetoric in the age of social media. Join us for this compelling journey through the words that defined presidencies.
