The Landon Lecture Series

Kansas State University is home to the Landon Lecture Series, one of the nation's most prestigious and well-known lectures. Several times a year, global leaders share insight on the Landon Lecture stage. Inaugurated in 1966 by former K-State President James A. McCain, the lecture series is a tribute to the late Alfred M. Landon, a former Kansas governor and distinguished political leader. Speakers have included current and former U.S. presidents, world leaders, Supreme Court justices, CEOs and many other prominent figures.
