Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and former National Security Advisor Stephen Hadley spoke at Washington University in St. Louis on behalf of the Atlantic Council and the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.
The discussion was covered by Washington University’s independent student newspaper “Student Life.”
The event, which was moderated by Pulitzer Center Executive Director Jon Sawyer, was initially promoted as an intimate discussion with Albright and Hadley over coffee in the Women’s Building Formal Lounge. However, enthusiasm for the speakers, expressed by both students and community members, persuaded event organizers to relocate the event to a space where capacity matched interest, prompting a change first to Emerson Auditorium in Knight Hall and ultimately to Graham Chapel.
Washington University students were generally excited about the opportunity to hear from Hadley and Albright, who delivered Washington University’s 142nd Commencement address and holds an honorary doctor of humanities degree from the University.
