David Axelrod to Speak on Campus

February 14, 2019

David Axelrod, former Chief Strategist and Senior Advisor to President Obama, is coming to Bradley. Axelrod will be a guest of Bradley’s Institute for Principled Leadership in Public Service (IPL) in conjunction with the Dirksen Congressional Center on Thursday, February 21.

Axelrod has some insight into the 2020 presidential election and the current state of politics given his experiences of working on hundreds of political campaigns including President Obama’s. As a commentator, political strategist, former political writer for the Chicago Tribune and now the founding director of the University of Chicago’s non-partisan Institute of Politics, he has a lot to say.

This event is not open to the public. Media is invited to attend and cover his remarks, but there will not be a media availability.

Some media in Bradley University's current print, video and online materials was acquired before the COVID-19 pandemic. Media acquired after the pandemic began was done so in compliance with Bradley's COVID-19 safety protocols at the time. The ongoing safety of our faculty, staff and students is of the utmost concern during these unprecedented times.
