From 2002-2007, Salisbury University’s Paul S. Sarbanes Lecture Series brought some of the nation’s most prominent legislators to campus to share their insights with students and the community.

PACE reintroduces the series with a virtual presentation by former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley 6 p.m. Monday, March 1 in a virtual format. This appearance also marks the keynote address for “The Art and Science of Running for Office,” a two-week series which gives a full overview on running a political campaign.

O’Malley served as the state’s 61st governor from 2007-15 after eight years as mayor of Baltimore. He was a Democratic candidate for U.S. president in 2016. He also has authored the book Smarter Government: How to Govern for Results in the Information Age and its companion Smarter Government Workbook: A 14-Week Implementation Guide to Governing for Results.

Celebrating 20 years in 2019

PACE was launched in 1999 to reinvigorate the idea of a state university as a place where civic and political involvement could be developed and where students' spirits of generosity and intellectual curiosity could foster engagement. PACE is a nonpartisan institute committed to civic learning, engaged citizenship and community involvement that sparks interest in public affairs and civic life for the students and the communities of Maryland's Eastern Shore.

Dr. Harry Basehart, co-founder of PACE, is professor emeritus of Political Science. Dr. Basehart co-authored the book, "State and Local Government: Politics and Public Policies," which is used extensively across the country in university government courses.

During his 37-year tenure at SU, Dr. Basehart conducted over 15 voter and citizen satisfaction surveys and supervised over 300 students in governmental internships, many in the Maryland General Assembly. Within the community, he served for several years as chair of the City of Salisbury Ethics Commission. Dr. Basehart remains active with PACE in his role as the SU Student Voting Ambassador.

Dr. Francis Kane, co-founder of PACE, taught in the Philosophy Department at SU for 35 years, primarily in political philosophy, ethics and biomedical ethics. Dan Rather, CBS news anchor, praised Dr. Kane's book, "Neither Beasts Nor Gods: Civic Life and the Public Good" as "necessary to the health of any community."
