Denison welcomes Governor Jon Huntsman Jr. of Utah to meet with classes and deliver an address titled “Restoring America's Leadership at Home and Abroad”

Denison's Mary Elizabeth Babcock Lectureship in the American Conservative Tradition welcomes former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman Jr. to speak at an all-college convocation in Swasey Chapel and join several classes during his stay on campus. Huntsman is an American politician, businessman and diplomat who began his career in public service as a White House staff assistant for Ronald Reagan in 1988. Since then he has served four additional United States presidents in critical roles around the world and completed two terms as Governor of Utah. A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, he ran as a candidate for the 2012 Republican Presidential nomination.

Huntsman has served as a visiting fellow at Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government, as well as a distinguished lecturer at Duke University's Sanford School of Public Policy. He now serves as co-chair, along with Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia, of “No Labels,” a growing citizens' movement of Republicans and Democrats, and everyone in between dedicated to promoting a new politics of problem-solving.
