Broad Series Lectures

About the Ruth K. and Shepard Broad Distinguished Lecture Series

The Ruth K. and Shepard Broad Distinguished Lecture Series is the flagship speaker series of the Steven J. Green School of International and Public Affairs. Generously supported by a gift from the Shepard Broad Foundation Inc. and a match from the college, the series provides students, faculty and the community with insights into the events and forces shaping contemporary global affairs.

By enriching the school’s academic programs and strengthening its outreach initiatives, the series actively supports Green School’s mission. Every semester, the series brings notable speakers to the FIU campuses, including Michael D. Kennedy, the Howard R. Swearer Director of the Watson Institute for International Studies at Brown University; Jeffry A. Frieden, the Stanfield Professor of International Peace at Harvard University; and John J. Mearsheimer, the R. Wendell Harrison Distinguished Service Professor of Political Science at the University of Chicago, among others.

Taking inspiration from the legacy of Ruth and Shepard Broad, whose lives and works transcended the boundaries of states and societies, the Green School strives to be a premier institution for research, education and training in the fields of international and public affairs, as well as an essential resource for analysis and consulting. The school brings together many of FIU’s internationally oriented disciplines and houses many of the university’s most prominent international centers, institutes and programs. The Green School provides cutting edge perspectives, worlds ahead faculty, and the analytical skills necessary to comprehend and compete in the globalized world of the 21st Century.
