WTAMU’s Distinguished Lecture Series was created in 2007 to enhance education in the classroom. A portion of the student activity fee funds the series, and committee members strive to select speakers who appeal to a broad spectrum of the student body. The mission of the Distinguished Lecture Series is to invite persons of national prominence to the WTAMU campus in order to expose our students to some of the most important issues of our times.

The Distinguished Lecture Series at WTAMU has brought some big names to campus through the years to inspire and enlighten students, faculty and the community. Topics are varied, and guest speakers have included President Bill Clinton, Elie Wiesel, Maya Angelou, Karl Rove, Mike Huckabee, Dr. Jared Diamond and Sally Ride.
