Judd, one of the most vocal figures of the #MeToo movement and named TIME’s 2017 “Person of the Year,” will speak for spring convocation, part of the university’s 2022-23 speaker series, at 7 p.m. April 13, 2023.
A graduate of the University of Kentucky, Judd is currently serving as a Global Goodwill Ambassador for UNFPA, the United Nations sexual and reproductive health agency.
University spokesman Owen Covington said Elon is looking forward to welcoming Judd to campus.
"The university is pleased that after cancellation of the planned lecture event last fall due to severe weather conditions, Elon was able to work with Ashley Judd to reschedule her talk," Covington wrote in an email to Elon News Network. "Our community appreciates her flexibility and willingness to visit the university this spring, and we look forward to hearing her speak."
Tickets for the speaker series are free for students, staff and faculty and cost $15 for those without an Elon ID.
