The Senator Margaret Chase Smith Lectureship on Public Affairs was endowed in 1989 by the Margaret Chase Smith Foundation in honor of Sen. Smith’s contributions to Maine and to the nation. UMaine’s Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center brings to campus a person of national status to deliver a lecture in the field of civic and public life. The lectureship is supported in part by the University of Maine Foundation, The Division of Student Life, the Cohen Institute for Leadership and Public Service and a grant from the Cultural Affairs/Distinguished Lecture Series Fund.
