Dean Skip Rutherford and public programs director Nikolai DiPippa promised earlier in the week that the Clinton School of Public Service would mark the 1,000th speaker series event with someone special: That someone, we learned today, is Chelsea Clinton. Chelsea will deliver a Kumpuris Distinguished Lecture Series talk at 6 p.m. Sept. 18 and will sign copies of her new book, “It’s Your World: Get Informed, Get Inspired, and Get Going.” The series are usually at the Clinton School, but this one will likely be in a bigger venue.

The rest of the September lineup will be announced later. Bob Dole kicked off the speaker series on Sept. 18, 2004.

In a note to Clinton School faculty and staff, Rutherford wrote "this series has enriched our students academic experiences; provided them
unprecedented access with leaders and decision makers; and given
the public (in person or via internet) the opportunity to participate in free and special experiences."
