Program kicks off annual lecture series focusing on “Principled Voices”

A few weeks ago, the Program was pleased to welcome Armenian Parliamentarian, Edmon Marukyan, to the University to present the inaugural lecture, “Fighting corruption and advocating for human rights in Armenia,” of a new annual lecture series. The series “Principled Voices,” supported by the Stephen and Chacke Scallen Lecture in Human Rights Fund, is designed to highlight leaders and thinkers who distinguish themselves by carrying out their passion for human rights, cultural awareness, democratic principles, fairness, and dignity, often at great odds and great personal risk.
