Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice spoke twice at the LBJ School of Public Affairs on March 18 on a variety of topics ranging from the anniversary of the start of the Iraq war, to leadership, education, health care and international development.
Dr. Rice first addressed LBJ School students in a small, fireside chat-style event where she took questions from the audience in an open Q&A session pictured left.
Later that evening, Dr. Rice spoke to a capacity crowd in the Lady Bird Johnson Auditorium at an event co-sponsored by the LBJ School and the LBJ Presidential Library. Library Director Mark Updegrove opened the event. LBJ School Dean Robert Hutchings introduced Dr. Rice.
In her remarks, Dr. Rice touched on the importance of education to her personally and to our nation as a whole, her experiences living through the events of 9/11 as the National Security Advisor and many other policy and personal insights from her long career.
