The discussion is free and open to the public. No backpacks are allowed inside Loeb Playhouse, and bag check will be available. The event also will be streamed live via webcast..
"We anticipate a lively and nonpartisan discussion on the important issues facing higher education, as well as the governor's reflections as governor and how he is transitioning to university president," said Carolyn Curiel, a clinical professor of communication.
Curiel is director of Project Impact, a student-driven, universitywide initiative. It's focused on experiential learning, in partnership with C-SPAN, at Purdue and in Washington, D.C., and through on-campus forums.
The one-hour interview will include questions from the audience at the end, and audience members will be able to use Twitter to ask questions
Lamb interviewed Daniels in 2011 to discuss his role as governor and his new book, "Keeping the Republic: Saving America by Trusting Americans."
Daniels is serving the remainder of his term before taking over as Purdue's 12th president in January.
