INDIANOLA, Iowa — The seventh annual Culver Lecture has been canceled “due to inclement weather and other factors,” the John C. Culver Public Policy Center posted on its official Facebook page Sunday.

Chuck Hagel, former secretary of defense and U.S. senator from Nebraska, was scheduled to deliver the lecture at 7 p.m. Monday in Hubbell Hall in the Kent Campus Center.

“Secretary Hagel very much regrets having to cancel his trip, and the Culver Center apologizes for any inconveniences by this last-minute (cancelation),” the Facebook post reads.

Officials with the Culver Center are working with the secretary to reschedule for a later date.
