Senator Mitchell PhotoThe College will offer a live stream of the 2016 George J. Mitchell Distinguished International Lecture Tuesday, March 15.

Former U.S. Senator George J. Mitchell will recount some of his most compelling and enlightening stories from his recently released book, The Negotiator, including his instrumental work on clean air and water legislation, the Iran-Contra hearings, and healthcare reform, as well as life after the Senate, from leading the successful Northern Ireland peace process to serving as chairman of the Walt Disney Company to heading investigations into the use of steroids in baseball and unethical activity surrounding the Olympic Games. Through it all, Senator Mitchell’s incredible accounts—some hilarious, others tragic, all revealing—offer invaluable insights into critical moments in the last half century of business, law, and politics, both domestic and international.

Please visit to access the live stream. It will be available beginning at 6:45 p.m. The lecture will begin at 7 p.m., and will be held in the Diamond Building’s Ostrove Auditorium on the Colby College campus.
