A spokesman for the Jacksonville-based school, Todd Spann, says details of Carter's visit will be worked out later.

The 89-year-old Democrat will speak as part of the Phi Alpha lecture series. It's named for a literary society at Illinois College. Previous speakers have included U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin and journalist Helen Thomas.

Carter served in the White House from 1977 to 1981. He turns 90 on Oct. 1.

Illinois College is located about 35 miles west of Springfield.
