Professor Lawrence Wilkerson is the Distinguished Visiting Professor of Government and Public Policy at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Va. Before his decade at William and Mary, he served 31 years in the U.S. Army, including as special assistant to Gen. Colin L. Powell when the general was chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He was also Powell’s chief of staff when Powell was Secretary of State. His remarks will address Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)—the technology, the cultural impact of their use, the ramifications for international and domestic law, the strategic, operational and tactical dimensions and the effects on the warrior ethic of the U.S. Armed Forces.  
Both events are sponsored by Society and Environment, the School of Social and Cultural Studies, the Cultural and Societal Honor Society, Multicultural Affairs Center and the Department of History.
