Dorothy L. Thompson Lecture Series

Dorothy L. Thompson Civil Rights Lectures

In recognition of Dorothy L. Thompson's contributions to the field of human rights on campuses throughout Kansas and the nation, Kansas State University has established the Dorothy L. Thompson Civil Rights Lecture Series.

The focus of the lecture series is to provide diversity/civil rights information opportunities for faculty, students and staff. The lecture series, open to all on campus and in the community, invites eminent scholars and professionals in many fields to Kansas State University to exemplify and discuss how diversity leads to excellence.

Former speakers have included several former U.S. Surgeon Generals, several Presidents of the ACLU, and a host of distinguished legal scholars, authors, and other dignitaries from across the United States.
