The Philip A. Hart and William G. Milliken Endowed Speaker Series for Integrity in Politics will encourage a more civil approach to politics, by inviting individuals to speak on campus who have demonstrated a commitment to encouraging positive change in American politics and policy-making. This series will assist Central Michigan University in its efforts to prepare students to be future leaders.

The endowment's advisory board seeks keynote speakers whose work embodies the ideals of leaders like Senator Philip A. Hart and Governor William G. Milliken. They select individuals who promote the greater good of the communities and people they serve through a spirit of reason, cooperation and inclusiveness.

Although the series is national in focus, special consideration may be given to speakers with ties or expertise in issues of significance to Michigan and the Midwest.
