What is Main Program?

The MSC Wiley Lecture Series features some of the world’s most renowned policy makers and noted experts. Past lecture panelists include former U.S. Presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter, U.S. Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger, Alexander Haig, Madeleine Albright, and Condoleezza Rice, and former British Prime Ministers Edward Heath, James Callaghan, and Margaret Thatcher. Notable public personalities such as ABC news correspondents Sam Donaldson, George Will, 60 Minutes co-editor Ed Bradley, and former press secretary to President Reagan, Larry Speakes, have also spoken.

The scope of the Wiley Lecture Series extends far beyond the confines of Texas A&M. While the program generally has an in-house audience of about 2,500 students and local citizens, it also receives extensive media coverage.
