Distinguished Speaker Series: U.S. Senator Susan Collins

Wednesday, February 21 | 6:30 PM | ASEAN Auditorium, Cabot Center

Join us for an engaging conversation with United States Senator Susan Collins about politics, bipartisanship, and public service. First elected in 1996, Senator Collins has earned a national reputation as an effective legislator who works across party lines to seek consensus on our nation’s most important issues. Ranked as the most bipartisan member of the U.S. Senate for the past four years, Senator Collins has never missed a vote in her twenty years in office.  A native of Caribou, Maine, Senator Collins graduated Phi Beta Kappa from St. Lawrence University and joined the staff of then-Congressman and later Senator William Cohen. She was appointed Director of the Small Business Administration’s regional office in Boston by President George H. W. Bush, and she was the founding Executive Director of the Center for Family Business at Husson University in Bangor, Maine.

This event is the 5th Alan D. Solomont Lecture on Citizenship and Public Service and is supported by Tisch College’s Distinguished Speaker Series. Cosponsored by the School of Arts & Sciences' Political Science Department, the Tufts Republicans, and CIVIC.
