STATESBORO — Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will speak at Georgia Southern University at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 8. The event is free and open to the public. The campus location of the event will be announced later.
Rice served as secretary of state from January 2005-09. Before that, she served as national security advisor. Rice will speak on the topic of leadership.
“We believe one of the best ways to teach our students about leadership is to give them the chance to hear from people who have dealt first-hand with the pressures and rewards of leadership positions,” said Teresa Thompson, GSU vice president of student affairs and enrollment management. “I think this is a wonderful opportunity for our students to learn from someone of Dr. Rice’s caliber. As someone who served as provost of Stanford University and then went on to become the first female African-American secretary of state, she has insight that few others can offer. I hope thousands of our students will take advantage of this tremendous opportunity.”  
Rice is now the Thomas and Barbara Stephenson senior fellow on public policy at the Hoover Institution and a professor of political science at Stanford University.
