On Monday, April 9, John Ashcroft addressed the AU community in Kerwin Hall. The event was hosted by the AUSG Kennedy Political Union and co-sponsored by the Graduate Leadership College and College Republicans.

A former U.S. Attorney General, Governor and U.S. Senator, John Ashcroft serves as founder and Chairman of The Ashcroft Group and The Ashcroft Law Firm, which maintains practices in a variety of areas, including anti-corruption compliance, privacy and data protection, and business crisis management.

As Attorney General, Mr. Ashcroft led the U.S. Department of Justice, one of the largest government organizations in the United States. Mr. Ashcroft integrated strategic planning, budgeting and performance measures, which resulted in the DOJ earning a clean audit for the first time in its history.

Before serving as Attorney General, Mr. Ashcroft served eight years as Governor of Missouri and six years as United States Senator from Missouri.
