Milton S. Eisenhower Symposium

The Milton S. Eisenhower Symposium is a lecture series sponsored by The Johns Hopkins University. The Symposium runs each year over the course of the fall semester, as a counterpart to the Foreign Affairs Symposium.

Established in 1967, the MSE Symposium is designed to present an issue of national importance to the university in its entirety, as well as to the Baltimore and Washington D.C. communities. The series is named in honor of Milton S. Eisenhower, who served as University President from 1956-1967 and again from 1971-1972. He was the younger brother of U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The Symposium has established a reputation as a forum for the free exchange of ideas and the analysis of issues at the forefront of the nationís conscience. All events are free and open to the public.

The Symposium is run entirely by undergraduate students at the Universityís Homewood Campus. The co-chairs are responsible for choosing a theme, securing speakers, raising the necessary funds, recruiting a student staff, and publicizing the series. There is a staff of about 20 students. The chairs for the 2019 symposium are Siena DeMatteo, Taran Krishnan, Mickey Sloat, and Dave Taylor.

Symposium events are held on the Homewood Campus of the Johns Hopkins University. Each speaker delivers an address to attendees, usually followed by a question and answer session with the audience. Additionally, some speakers hold a meet and greet session with the audience after the event.
