About the J. Michael Adams Lecture and Conversation Series:

 The UNAI J. Michael Adams Lecture and Conversation Series was inaugurated in 2014 in remembrance of educator, author and advocate of global citizenship, J. Michael Adams. Mr. Adams served as president of Fairleigh Dickinson University from 1999 until his death in 2012, during which time he inspired a new vision and mission dedicated to preparing world citizens through global education. Under his leadership Fairleigh Dickinson sparked new and close ties with the United Nations, including becoming the first university in the world to earn Special Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), the creation of the UN Pathways program to bring UN speakers to campus and becoming the very first member of United Nations Academic Impact.
