Rice served under President George W. Bush.  She was also the first woman to serve as Bush’s assistant to the president for National Security Affairs.

The Distinguished Lecture Series is a student-sponsored program. Speakers are chosen by a committee of students, faculty and staff, and the events are funded by a student-approved fee, appropriated by the Programs Allocation Board.
