MISSOULA – President Donald Trump’s former chief strategist appears to be scheduled to speak on the University of Montana campus this December.

Steve Bannon, also known for his role as a founding member of Breitbart News, a far-right news, opinion and commentary website, will be the keynote speaker at the 15th International Conference on Advances in Computer Entertainment Technology (ACE), according to the group’s website.

We reached out to Paula Short, Director of Communications for the Office of the President for more information about the event. Short said ACE 2018 is not a University of Montana-sponsored event, but the group is using venues on campus.

The date for the event is set for Dec. 10 – 14.
