A Lecture Series to Inspire
The five-year series was made possible through a generous donation from the Daniel K. Inouye Institute. From 215-2019, each year’s lecture focused on a theme that reflected Sen. Inouye’s legacy of public service and civic engagement.
The Daniel K. Inouye Distinguished Lecture Series, in partnership with the John W. Kluge Center at the Library of Congress, reflected 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.
From 2015-2019, the lectures were held at the Library of Congress and live streamed online, with simultaneous gatherings held at the University of Hawaii at Manoa and across the State. These discussions were 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.
