by Madeleine Morgenstern

Correction appended

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is expected to make a major announcement regarding Internet freedom Tuesday at the Jack Morton Auditorium.

The State Department is billing Clinton's speech, titled "Internet Rights and Wrongs: Choices and Challenges in a Networked World," as policy statement.The speech starts at 12:30 p.m.

University spokeswoman Emily Cain did not return a request for comment on whether student tickets would be available.

Clinton gave a similar speech about Internet freedom last year at the Newseum, focusing global free speech and expression.

The former presidential candidate was last on campus in October 2009, speaking with Secretary of Defense Robert Gates in a joint interview in Lisner Auditorium.

The Hatchet incorrectly reported that Sec. Hillary Clinton spoke at the Newseum in January 2011. In fact, it was January 2010.
