Dan Rather, who has circled the globe reporting on some of the most significant events of our time, will speak on “What I’ve Learned from a Lifetime of Reporting,” at 7 p.m. Tuesday in Brown Theatre, as part of the University of Louisiana at Monroe’s Presidential Lyceum Series.

Earlier in the day, Rather will share his experiences with ULM students in a master class from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m., followed by a short visit with local media outlets at 5 p.m., before heading to the Patron Party scheduled at 5:30 p.m. in the ULM Seventh Floor Library Conference Center.

ULM’s Presidential Lyceum Series began in 2003 under the direction of former President James E. Cofer Sr., to promote intellectual exchange among ULM students, faculty, staff and the community. Past Lyceum speakers have included journalist and Pulitzer prize winning author Thomas Friedman; broadcast journalist Lisa Ling; political strategists James Carville and Mary Matalin; businessman and entrepreneur Steve Forbes; comedian and television personality Ben Stein; lawyer and social activist Robert Kennedy Jr.; author/historian and Pulitzer Prize winner Doris Kearns Goodwin; and film/TV star and comedian Bill Cosby.

Rather has been called the voice, heart, and soul of American journalism, and is one of the most recognized and renowned reporters in the world.

In his 40-year career as a journalist, Rather has reported from the front lines around the globe, including such places as Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam, Tiananmen Square, the Middle East, Bosnia, and Haiti
