Shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Tom Ridge became the public face of America’s national security concerns as he became the first secretary of the newly created U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Although he left the post in 2005, Ridge continues to serve as an expert in global security as the president and CEO of Ridge Global LLC.
Ridge will be visiting the University of Notre Dame during the weekend commemorating 9/11. As part of his visit, he will deliver a talk, “A Conversation with Tom Ridge,” from 3:30 to 5 p.m. on Sept.10 (Friday) at the Mendoza College of Business Jordan Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.
He also will be recognized during the Notre Dame-Michigan football game on Sept. 11.
