Former vice president and 2007 Nobel Peace Prize laureate Al Gore was the guest speaker at an undergraduate political science class on March 26.

The class, focused on leadership, examines the skills needed to be a successful leader and the often conflicting demands of public life. It is taught by John Geer, vice provost for academic and strategic affairs and Gertrude Conaway Vanderbilt Professor of Political Science, and Jon Meacham, Distinguished Visiting Professor of Political Science and a Pulitzer Prize-winning presidential historian.
