The university says its Interdisciplinary Studies Department and Gender Studies Program has tapped Valerie Jarrett to present at the Women's Leadership Salon. The event is set for Monday evening at the university's College of Health and Social Services Auditorium in Las Cruces.

Valerie Jarrett served in the Obama White House through the duration of his presidency, working on public engagement and intergovernmental affairs until early 2017 when he left office.

Patti Wojahn, who heads NMSU's interdisciplinary studies program, called Jarrett a "role model and leader for women's equality."
