Webcast to be Provided of Karl Rove-Howard Dean Debate

DePauw University

September 1, 2009, Greencastle, Ind. — The first-ever debate between Karl Rove and Howard Dean on a college campus -- set for September 11 at DePauw University -- will be viewable anywhere in the world via the Internet. Mssrs. Dean and Rove have agreed to let the University present a webcast of their Timothy and Sharon Ubben Lecture at DePauw. Video and audio of the program, which begins at 7:30 p.m., will be available via this link and will remain archived for two weeks following the event.

It's become apparent that interest in this event may likely exceed the capacity of Kresge Auditorium (appoximately 1,400) so we've made provisions to ensure that if anyone can't get in the venue or even can't get to Greencastle, they can still enjoy the proceedings," says Ken Owen '82, executive director of media relations at DePauw and coordinator of the Ubben Lecture Series. "On behalf of our alumni and friends around the world, we thank Karl Rove and Howard Dean for allowing us to webcast their debate."
