Bob Woodward discusses the American presidency at UWM at Waukesha

Students and faculty at UWM at Waukesha, along with the general public, got a chance Thursday to meet and talk with one of the legendary figures in journalism, Bob Woodward.

Woodward, an assistant editor of the Washington Post and half of the reporting team that broke the Watergate story, came to the Waukesha campus to discuss “The Past, Present and Future of the American Presidency.”

Woodward, author of 21 bestselling books, most of which focus on presidents, discussed Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Donald Trump and others.

Before the talk, a group of students met with Woodward and got the chance to ask him their own questions.

The event was sponsored by the Tommy G. Thompson Center on Public Leadership.
