Roger B. Porter, IBM Professor of Business and Government at Harvard University, will present a Brigham Young University Wheatley Forum Wednesday, Feb. 15, at 7 p.m., in the Harold B. Lee Library Auditorium.

His presentation is hosted by the Wheatley Institution and the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies and his lecture is titled “What Great Leaders Do.”

Admission is free and open to the public.

Porter has served for more than a decade in senior economic policy positions in the White House, most recently as assistant to the president for economic and domestic policy (1989–93). He served as director of the White House Office of Policy Development in the Reagan Administration and as executive secretary of the president’s Economic Policy Board during the Ford Administration.

An alumnus of Brigham Young University, Porter was a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University, where he received a BPhil, was a White House Fellow (1974–75), and received an MA and a PhD from Harvard University.

The Wheatley Institution was founded in 2007 to enhance the academic climate and scholarly reputation of BYU and to enrich faculty and student experiences by contributing recognized scholarship that lifts society by preserving and strengthening its core institutions.
