Former Special Assistant to President George W. Bush to Speak at Concordia University

September 10, 2018 - 4:01pm

Former special assistant to President George W. Bush, Tim Goeglein, will be speaking in Nebraska about his professional experiences relating to both politics and religion. His presentation is titled “Faith in the Halls of Power” and will also talk about growing from failures and owning up to mistakes during his appearance at Concordia University Monday, September 17.

Goeglein was the first ever deputy press secretary for the White House. He is currently working as the vice president of external relations for Focus on the Family.

A big part of Goeglein’s presentation will focus on his resignation from the Bush White House after admitting to plagiarism.

Concordia professor of sociology Dr. Kathy Miller says Goeglein has an important message for students and the public.

“The other thing as to why we thought this was an important message is because, in a very public way, he was in a position and was accused and guilty of plagiarism," Miller said. "But he owned up to it, so I think that’s a really important lesson to students to hear and understand that you can mess up, but it’s how you respond when you do make mistakes.”

Goeglein will be speaking on Concordia’s campus Monday, September 17. The presentation will begin at 7 p.m. CT and is open to the public.
