ANDERSON - A former United States Attorney General will Tuesday speak at Anderson University. Eric Holder, who served in the role from 2009 to 2015, will address an open forum in observance of Constitution Day on the Anderson campus.

Holder's remarks will begin at 2:00 p.m. at York Performance Hall at AU. The event is free and open to the public. Before his speech, Holder will meet with students majoring in national security studies.

"Holder brings to AU a wealth of experience earned during his remarkable career as a public servant  in D.C.," said Anderson President John Pistole. "His appearance will be a valuable opportunity for all of us as we live out our mission to educate our students for a life of faith and service in the church and society."

Constitution Day is celebrated on September 17, which was the date in 1787 that the U.S. Constitution was signed. 

Holder's appearance in Anderson was organized by the university's National Security Studies Fellows. The group most recently hosted former FBI Director Robert Mueller.
