WSU’s Walker Institute to host George Will for Constitution Day

OGDEN, Utah — To celebrate Constitution Day, Weber State University’s Olene S. Walker Institute of Politics & Public Service welcomes guest speaker George F. Will and interviewer Boyd Matheson.

Will is a twice-weekly columnist for The Washington Post covering politics and domestic and foreign affairs. He began writing for the Post in 1974 and was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for commentary in 1977. Will is also an author and regular contributor to MSNBC and NBC News.

The event will be held at 12:30 p.m. on Sept. 6 in the Haven J. Barlow Lecture Hall, located on the first floor of Lindquist Hall. The event is open to the public, but seating preference in the lecture hall will be given to WSU students. Additional seating will be available in an overflow classroom with a livestream of the interview. Box lunches will be available for students while supplies last. 

“It’s important for people to know about the country’s founding documents,” said Leah Murray, director of the Walker Institute. “It helps people create and foster a shared identity. There’s too much in this world that divides us, and the Constitution should be and can be something that unites us.” 

Matheson is the host of KSL NewsRadio’s Inside Sources.
