Information on Time & Venue for Oct. 8 Condoleezza Rice Ubben Lecture

September 16, 2019

The October 8 Ubben Lecture by Condoleezza Rice will take place in Kresge Auditorium, located within DePauw University's Green Center for the Performing Arts (600 S. Locust Street), at 7:30 p.m. (doors will close at 7:25).

As was originally announced July 5, the event will be presented free of admission charge and is open to all, as is the case with all Ubben Lectures. Seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis, and no tickets will be distributed.

Dr. Rice is currently the Denning Professor in Global Business and the Economy at the Stanford Graduate School of Business; the Thomas and Barbara Stephenson Senior Fellow on Public Policy at the Hoover Institution; and a professor of Political Science at Stanford University. She is also a founding partner of RiceHadleyGates, LLC.

From January 2005 to 2009, Rice served as the 66th Secretary of State of the United States, the second woman and first African American woman to hold the post. Rice also served as President George W. Bush’s Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs (National Security Advisor) from January 2001 to 2005, the first woman to hold the position.

Her latest book, To Build a Better World: Choices to End the Cold War and Create a Global Commonwealth (co-authored by by Philip Zelikow, White Burkett Miller Professor of History and J. Wilson Newman Professor of Governance at the University of Virginia's Miller Center of Public Affairs), was released Tuesday.
