OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Former Defense Secretary and U.S. Senator Chuck Hagel will host his third symposium at UNO today.

The university will welcome roughly 300 high school students and teachers from the area for the university's third symposium in Public Service.

In one symposium, Joe Biden joined Hagel to speak, and the first symposium focused on Hagel's time in the Vietnam War and looking at the war in a modern age.

The symposium starts at 9:00 a.m. and includes a student Q&A after Hagel's speech. The two events run through 10:45 a.m. and will take place in the Strauss Performing Arts Center on UNO's campus.

We are live streaming the event on our website, Facebook page, and other streaming devices.
