With the announcement that CSU will welcome their first female president it'll surely energize the visit of Julia Gillard, the first woman to serve as Prime Minister of Australia. She will speak at Colorado State University on April 8th at 6pm.

Admission is free and open to the public, but tickets are required and available at the Lory Student Center box office or online at csutix.com.

“As a world-class, global university it is imperative that Colorado State University engage with prominent leaders from around the world,” said Shauna DeLuca, assistant director of CSU’s Office of International Programs, who is organizing Gillard’s appearance. “By bringing the world to CSU, we can create a community that is better informed and more prepared to address the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century.”“It is an honor for CSU to host such an extraordinary change agent and advocate for girls’ education and disability rights,” DeLuca added.
