OREM, Utah —Former Vice President Mike Pence will speak at the Gary R. Herbert Institute for Public Policy at Utah Valley University next month.
The announcement came during a public unveiling of the institute Thursday.
Former Utah Gov. Gary Herbert called Pence a longtime friend and he said they worked together while Pence was governor of Indiana.
“Mike Pence is an example of courageous leadership. We are honored that he would take time out of this busy schedule to visit Utah and speak to the students of UVU,” Herbert said.
The Pence event is set for Sept. 20 at the Noorda Center for the Performing Arts on the UVU campus. Students and the public are invited. The event runs for an hour, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Tickets will cost $5 for the general public. Students will not have to pay but they will need a ticket.
Tickets are available at the Utah Valley University website.
America First Credit Union and the Larry H. and Gail Miller Family Foundation each donated $500,000 to the institute at Thursday’s unveiling. The mission of the institute is to develop future leaders, discuss new ideas, and encourage civil dialogue.
