Karl Rove to kick off UT’s 2014-15 Honors Lecture Series

Political strategist and former presidential adviser Karl Rove will be the first speaker in this year’s Jesup Scott Honors College Distinguished Lecture Series at The University of Toledo.

Rove will address a capacity crowd Monday, Sept. 15, at 7 p.m. in Doermann Theater. The lecture will also be streamed live free of charge in UT’s Memorial Field House Room 2100 for those members of the community interested in viewing the speech.

Rove is one of the nation’s best-known political strategists. He served as senior adviser to President George W. Bush for seven years and led Bush’s election campaigns in 2000 and 2004.

He served as deputy chief of staff from 2004 to 2007, overseeing the offices of Strategic Initiatives, Political Affairs, Public Liaison, and Intergovernmental Affairs. Rove was deputy chief of staff for policy and coordinated the White House policymaking process.

“Universities are forums for great conversations, and we’re excited to hear from this year’s speakers,” said Dr. Lakeesha Ransom, dean of the Jesup Scott Honors College.

Also speaking as part of the 2014-15 Distinguished Lecture Series will be Paul Begala, political strategist and former adviser to President Bill Clinton, Wednesday, Jan. 21, and Dr. Brian Kennedy, director of the Toledo Museum of Art, Tuesday, March 24.
