Following our early-afternoon conversation with the Secretary, we will host a Presidential Election panel featuring NPR Lead Politics Editor Domenico Montanaro and Senior FiveThirtyEight Writer and “Whiz Kid” Harry Enten.

Our 2016 Golden Mug Luncheon will honor longtime SEGL favorite George Moose.  Moose has served as Ambassador to several countries and was Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs during the 1994 Rwandan Genocide.  Our students visit him each term at the United States Institute of Peace, where he is Vice Chair of the Board.

The weekend is packed with additional events for our community, including:
