Ewigleben Lecture Series
The Ewigleben Lecture Series is bi-annually presented by the Higher, Adult and Lifelong Education program along with the Center for Higher and Adult Education.
The Ewigleben Lecture Series, endowed by alumnus and former president of Ferris State University Robert Ewigleben, is bi-annually presented by the Higher, Adult and Lifelong Education program along with the Center for Higher and Adult Education in the Department of Educational Administration. The lecture is part of the Advanced Policy Seminar Course (EAD 971) offered in the HALE doctoral program. The lecture brings a prominent state, national, or international policy leader to campus to share their perspectives on significant issues and trends on the higher education forefront. We honor the lifework of Dr. Ewigeblen's higher education leadership in domestic and international settings by providing opportunities for students and the surrounding postsecondary community to engage in dialogue with these other leaders.
Lectures have been presented by leading practitioners and scholars in the field of higher education policy.
