Paul Simon (video only)
This event marks the third time that Senator Paul Simon (honorary Doctor of Laws, 1989) spoke at IWU: once when he was Lieutenant Governor of Illinois (June 8, 1969) and as Senator (May 13, 1989). At the start of this event Professor of Political Science Tari Renner and senior political science major Elizabeth Eberspacher make Simon and honorary member of Pi Sigma Alpha, the political science honorary society.
