NEW BRUNSWICK - Hillary Rodham Clinton will discuss American democracy and its institutions, her political career and her role in the women’s political movement during a public conversation March 29 hosted by the Eagleton Institute of Politics at Rutgers University-New Brunswick.

Clinton, a former U.S. secretary of state, U.S. senator and presidential candidate, will talk with Eagleton director Ruth B. Mandel about her years in public life, reflecting on the institutions of government in which she participated, her path-breaking political career and her singular role in shaping women’s political history.

Clinton will visit as the Eagleton Institute’s 2017-2018 Clifford P. Case Professor of Public Affairs. The Institute is home to the Center for American Women and Politics, nationally recognized as the leading source of scholarly research and current data about American women’s political participation, founded by Mandel in 1971.

“Eagleton is proud to host the most important American political woman of our time,” Mandel said. “As a public leader, Hillary Rodham Clinton has crossed traditional boundaries, making both history and headlines. This visit will afford our students and the Rutgers community an opportunity to witness a conversation with the person behind the media fog.”

Clinton broke tradition as the first First Lady of the United States to run for elective office, serving from 2001 to 2009 as a member of the U.S. Senate from New York. She continued to crack the glass ceiling in 2007 by becoming the first woman to win a presidential primary or caucus and made history again in 2016 as the first woman to win a major party presidential nomination and as the first woman to win the national popular vote.

“Rutgers contributes to our nation’s conversations about politics, policy, and other issues affecting society,” said Deba Dutta, Chancellor of Rutgers-New Brunswick. “Our academic mission and innovative research and teaching create an environment in which global thought-leaders such as Secretary Clinton can share their experiences and perspectives. We welcome her and look forward to a fulfilling conversation with the Rutgers community.”

The event will take place Thursday, March 29, 2018 at Rutgers' College Avenue Gym in New Brunswick; doors open at 3 p.m. and all attendees must be seated by 4 p.m. Tickets for the event will be available to the Rutgers community on March 6. Remaining tickets will be available to the public on March 12. More information about ticketing can be found at eagleton.rutgers.edu/events.
