The U.N. Lecture Series

The global perspectives of the United Nations come to Wilkes University through a collaborative program launched during the 2011-2012 academic year. Presented in partnership with the Humpty Dumpty Institute's Higher Education Alliance for the United Nations, the program brings U.N. officials to campus throughout the year for lectures and informal meetings with students. Wilkes University is the only northeast Pennsylvania higher education institution participating in the program.
