An Evening with Former U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice

Event postponed; details to follow

ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. – Rockland Community College will host former U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice on Thursday, March 19 from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm at RCC’s Cultural Arts Theater at 145 College Road in Suffern. RCC faculty member Traci Alexander will moderate the event including a question and answer session with the audience.

“In honor of Women’s History Month, we are pleased to host Ambassador Rice whose illustrious career embodies the spirit of the College,” says RCC President Dr. Michael A. Baston. “Ambassador Rice is a role model for men and women alike and will enlighten and inspire those in attendance.”

At the event, Ambassador Rice will share stories from her fascinating new memoir Tough Love: My Story of the Things Worth Fighting For. She served as the 24th U.S. National Security Advisor from 2013 to 2017, was on the staff of the National Security Council, and was the Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs during President Bill Clinton's second term. A Brookings Institution fellow, she served as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations from 2009 to 2013.

With her trademark humor and grace, Ambassador Rice describes her life working in the inner sanctum of the White House and what it really means to walk the corridors of power. In Tough Love, she shares her triumphs and failures and the important life lessons she learned along the way. It promises to be an enlightening evening.
