About the Ford School Video Library
Each year, the Ford School hosts dozens of speakers who provide insight on a wide variety of compelling and timely policy topics. The school began to record these public talks more than a decade ago, and has curated a rich library of more than 200 videos with dozens of new ones added each year. In addition, you'll find a number of videos about President Ford and his legacy here--and about the students, faculty, alumni, and staff who make the school a dynamic, creative, and engaged community.
