Stephen Colbert has been welcoming a variety of guests so far: presidential hopefuls (Jeb Bush), enigmatic businesspeople (Elon Musk), A-list actors (George Clooney), charismatic comedians (Amy Schumer), and so on. But swinging by the Ed Sullivan theater later this month will be the one and only FLOTUS herself: Michelle Obama.

The first lady is set to stop by the Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Monday, Sept. 28, using her appearance to tout her “Let Girls Learn” and “Reach Higher” initiatives. The former aims to help young girls go to school, while the latter aims to inspire students pursue higher education, providing career opportunities and financial aid.

Obama is no stranger to speaking with Colbert. She has appeared on The Colbert Report twice — both before she became a first lady and after — and spoke with “Stephen Colbert.” 

Watch her second interview with him below:

The Late Show With Stephen Colbert airs at 11:35 p.m. ET weeknights on CBS.
