Condoleezza Rice to speak at Augustana forum

From staff reports

Augustana University and the Center for Western Studies will host former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as the 2018 Boe Forum on Public Affairs speaker March 20.

Rice, who also served as national security adviseor under President George W. Bush during the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, will discuss national security in today’s world.

Additional details about the event, as well as information on free tickets, will be announced in early 2018.

“Since its inception in 1995, the Boe Forum on Public Affairs has sought to provide access to individuals who can address events, issues or problems of worldwide or national concern and of broad public interest,” said Harry Thompson, executive director of the Center for Western Studies. “The Boe Forum committee’s selection of Dr. Condoleezza Rice to address the topic of national security fulfills in an especially timely way the mission of the Center for Western Studies to improve the quality of social and cultural life in the Northern Plains region.”

Augustana University President Stephanie Herseth Sandlin agreed.

“Augustana is honored to host Secretary Rice, a renowned scholar, author, professor and stateswoman, as the 2018 Boe Forum speaker,” Herseth Sandlin said. “During her service to our country over the past 30 years, Condoleezza Rice helped lead American foreign policy during some of history’s most significant events — from the collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War, to the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that followed. Her insight and perspective on the topic of national security in the world today will no doubt be both highly engaging and thought-provoking.”

Rice serves as 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 a founding partner of the strategic consulting firm RiceHadleyGates LLC.
