The Department of Political Science hosts an annual speaker series in honor of the late Admiral Alban ‘Stormy’ Weber. The gift by Admiral Weber brings to campus a speaker of note from public service and academia, to address comparative government and the United States’ role in the world. The evening is a notable event on the Department’s calendar of extracurricular activities, and draws a large audience of students (both undergraduate and graduate) faculty, staff, and the general public. The speakers are consistently people of great accomplishment, experience, and passion, and they come to campus with the objective of passing on their insight to students and others in Political Science.
