The former prime minister of the United Kingdom is coming to Indiana. David Cameron, who stepped down as prime minister earlier this year, will speak Thursday at DePauw University as part of the Ubben Lecture Series.
The lecture, "The Historic Events of 2016 and Where We Go From Here," is one of Cameron’s first public speaking appearances since leaving office, according to DePauw. The event will begin at 4:30 p.m. in Neil Fieldhouse on the university’s campus.
Cameron will become the sixth British prime minister to speak at DePauw. Harold Macmillan spoke at the university’s commencement in 1958, followed by Harold Wilson in 1981, Margaret Thatcher in 1992, John Major in 2001 and Tony Blair 2008. The last three were also part of the Ubben Lecture Series.
The event is free and open to the public. After the lecture, Cameron will answer questions presented by DePauw student journalists.
The Ubben Lecture Series was established in 1986 and has featured many notable speakers, including former president Bill Clinton, Peyton Manning, Colin Powell and Spike Lee. Earlier this year, Tony Award-winner Leslie Odom Jr. and former U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan took part in the series.
