Former Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis will speak at the Mondavi Center on Monday as part of the UC Davis Chancellor’s Colloquium distinguished speaker series.

Dukakis will discuss making a career of public service at 4 p.m.

The talk is free and open to the public. Those who wish to attend are asked to RSVP at www.mondaviarts.org.

Dukakis served an unprecedented three, four-year terms as governor, from 1975 to 1979 and from 1983 to 1991. He earned the Democratic Party’s nomination for president in 1988, losing to then-Vice President George H.W. Bush.

Since leaving office, he has served as a visiting professor at several colleges and universities, among them Harvard University, UCLA, Loyola Marymount University, the University of Hawaii and Northeastern University.

With other prominent Greek-Americans, Dukakis co-founded The Next Generation Initiative, a nonprofit foundation that provides fellowships, internships, seminars and other educational opportunities to students.

The chancellor’s series is intended to heighten local and national awareness of research at UC Davis and the speakers will share their vision for university-based research in the 21st century. A UCD faculty member will lead a question-and-answer session.

For more information, including videos of past speakers, see http://chancellor.ucdavis.edu/initiatives/colloquium.

The next scheduled speaker is Subra Suresh, director of the National Science Foundation, who will give a talk on April 25.
