Stupak to speak on campus Monday, will discuss integrity in politics

Former U.S. Congressman Bart Stupak will be on campus Monday to meet with students and give a speech.

Stupak represented Michigan's first district in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1993 to 2011.

He will meet with students in a classroom setting earlier in the day before giving a speech from 7 to 8 p.m. in Anspach Hall, room 161.

Sarah Buckley, College of Humanities and Social and Behavioral Sciences coordinator of marketing and events, said Stupak's visit is sponsored by the Hart-Milliken Endowed Speaker Series for Integrity in Politics.

Buckley said the former congressman from Michigan will be addressing the general theme of integrity in politics. The topic of his talk will be "After Hart and Milliken: Where have all our leaders gone?"

The speaker series is named in memory of former U.S. Senator Philip A. Hart and in honor of former Michigan Gov. William G. Milliken.

Admission to the event is free and open to the public.

"We encourage all students, faculty, staff and community members to attend," Buckley said.

Stupak is the second speaker hosted by the endowed series and will be the only speaker this semester.
