The lecture series, in partnership with the John W. Kluge Center at the Library of Congress, reflects the values exhibited and held high by Senator Daniel K. Inouye—bipartisanship, moral courage, and a selfless desire to open the world to Hawaii’s people.
The Daniel K. Inouye Distinguished Lecture Series is made possible through a generous donation from the Inouye Institute. Each year the lecture will focus on one theme that reflects Senator Inouye’s legacy of public service and civic engagement. The senator’s congressional papers are to be made digitally accessible, through an agreement between the institute and the Library, at both organizations.
Each lecture will be held at the Library of Congress and live streamed on the campus of the University of Hawaii at Manoa. These discussions are intended to live beyond the initial lecture, encouraging dialogue, inquiry and advocacy through its continued viewing and the development of video clips and curriculum modules for use and integration in AP high school and entry level collegiate classrooms.
