Miller Center Events
Since its founding more than 30 years ago, the Miller Center has been a central gathering place for nonpartisan public discussion on the institutions and issues that define our times.
The Miller Center Forum presents more than 60 speakers each year, drawn from high-ranking public officials and others involved in shaping public policy, from the academy, and from journalists covering national and international events. Forum Schedule | Full Archive of Forum Webcasts
The Miller Center launched its a National Debate Series in 2007, enlisting prominent national civic leaders from government, academia, and the business world to discuss issues of national importance to the governance of the country.
The Governing America in a Global Era (GAGE) Colloquia Series provides an open forum for scholars to share their works-in-progress and exchange ideas about politics, history and current affairs. Panels are held periodically to address special topics or showcase scholarly research.
The Miller Center holds regular conferences for discussion of important matters facing the nation. Recent conferences have examined topics ranging from education, to terrorism, to the role of White House Counsel. Recent examples include:
