Former President Barack Obama will speak at the University of Chicago Monday in his first public appearance since leaving office.

Obama is set to speak at the university about community organizing and civic engagement.

"This event is part of President Obama's post-presidency goal to encourage and support the next generation of leaders driven by strengthening communities around the country and the world," an advisory read.

While Obama has been spotted vacationing for most of the three months since he left office, he has not been completely silent.

He released a statement criticizing President Trump's immigration order that would have banned immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries and also denied Trump's assertion that Obama ordered Trump Tower to be placed under surveillance during the campaign.

Obama lived in Chicago before heading to Washington as a senator and then president, and it is the future site of his presidential library.
