Philip A. Hart and William G. Milliken Endowed Speaker Series for Integrity in Politics
The legislative process in America today often is tarnished by political partisanship, but two respected Michigan politicians demonstrated efforts in finding common ground through bipartisanship.
This endowed speaker series is named in memory of former U.S. Senator Philip A. Hart and in honor of former Michigan Governor William G. Milliken. A legendary trait of the careers of Senator Hart, a Democrat, and Governor Milliken, a Republican, was their ability to work together with members of opposing political parties.
To honor their distinguished careers and encourage a spirit of political compromise, Central Michigan University has established the Philip A. Hart and William G. Milliken Endowed Speaker Series for Integrity in Politics.
