Reince Priebus, former chief of staff to President Donald Trump, will speak at Duke University’s Page Auditorium on Monday, Dec. 4.

Priebus’ 5:30 p.m. talk will focus on America’s role one year after the presidential election. The event is free and open to the public, but tickets are required. They can be picked up in Rubenstein Hall 134 on Duke’s West Campus or reserved here.

Parking is available in the Bryan Center Parking Deck.

Priebus served as White House chief of staff for the first six months of the Trump administration and was chairman of the Republican National Committee from 2011-2017.

Peter Feaver, professor of political science and public policy at Duke, will interview Priebus.

“Reince Priebus had a front-row seat as the senior-most staff member in President Trump’s White House for the first half of 2017 and so had an unmatched vantage point from which to observe and shape the operations of the Trump administration,” Feaver said.

“His perspective allows him to bring insights that are rarely heard on Duke’s campus, so this is definitely a once-in-a-blue-moon opportunity for the Duke community to converse first-hand with such a consequential figure in American politics.”

The American Grand Strategy’s 2017 Ambassador Dave and Kay Phillips Family International Lectureship is co-sponsored by POLIS, the Sanford School of Public Policy and Department of Political Science.
