David Plouffe, policy and advocacy chief for The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative and former Obama campaign manager and White House senior advisor, talks in Occidental College’s Choi Auditorium as the inaugural speaker in the College’s new Obama Scholars Speakers Series, Oct. 19, 2018. Plouffe was joined by Clapp Distinguished Professor of Politics Peter Dreier and former California state senator and current Occidental trustee Hector De La Torre, who asked him a series of wide-ranging questions.<br />
The speakers series is part of the Obama Scholars Program, launched last year to empower exceptional students committed to the public good as it honors and perpetuates the principles President Barack Obama ’83 has advanced throughout his life. Occidental welcomed its first two Obama Scholars with the Class of 2022 this fall.<br />
