The University Lectures series welcomes respected journalist and award-winning National Public Radio (NPR) legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg in an on-stage conversation with College of Law Dean Craig M. Boise. With more than 40 years’ experience at NPR, her reports are regularly featured on “All Things Considered,” “Morning Edition,” and “Weekend Edition.” Newsweek has called Totenberg the “créme de la créme” of NPR, and Vanity Fair refers to her as the “Queen of Leaks.” Esquire named her one of the “Women We Love” in both 1988 and 1992. Totenberg was the first radio journalist to be honored by the National Press Foundation as Broadcaster of the Year. She has been recognized seven times by the American Bar Association for excellence in legal reporting and won the first-ever Toni House award presented by the American Judicature Society for a career body of work.
Now in its 18th season, the University Lectures was created through, and is supported by, the generosity of alumnus Robert B. Menschel ’51. The cross-disciplinary series brings to Syracuse University notable guest speakers of exceptional accomplishment who share their diverse global experiences and perspectives. American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation and Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) are available at each lecture. Totenberg’s appearance is co-sponsored by the Maxwell School, Campbell Public Affairs Institute, Newhouse School, Tully Center for Free Speech and the College of Law. Media sponsor for the University Lectures is WAER.
