Two former presidential chiefs of staff will speak at the University of Notre Dame on Oct. 4 as part of this year's Notre Dame Forum.
"Going Global: Exploring the Challenges and Opportunities of Globalization" is the topic of this year's forum, a year-long series of events and speakers focusing on a single issue.
Andrew Card and Denis McDonough, who served as chiefs of staff to Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, respectively, will discuss U.S. foreign policy in a keynote event at 7 p.m. Oct. 4 in Leighton Concert Hall in DeBartolo Performing Arts Center.
The discussion, titled "Views from the West Wing: How Global Trends Shape U.S. Foreign Policy" will be moderated by Maura Policelli, executive director of the Global Policy Initiative in Notre Dame's new Keough School of Global Affairs.
The event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited and tickets will be required. Details about how to request tickets will be announced soon.
Card served as Bush’s chief of staff from November 2000 to April 2006 and was the individual who informed the president of the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. He is the second-longest-serving White House chief of staff in history.
