LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- The administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development is speaking at the University of Louisville later this month.

Rajiv Shah assumed the top job at USAID days just before the 2010 Haiti earthquake. He led the agency's efforts to clear away rubble, deliver vaccines and provide safe housing in the aftermath.

Shah is giving a talk as part of the McConnell Center's distinguished speaker series. His talk, "Ending Extreme Poverty through Innovation and Partnerships," will be at Bigelow Hall, Miller Information Technology Center, on UofL's Belknap Campus on Sept. 20.

USAID is the U.S. government agency primarily responsible for administering civilian foreign aid. It operates in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe.
