The Dalai Lama, spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism and winner of the
Nobel Peace Prize, will visit Colgate University in April as part of the
Global Leaders Lecture Series.

On Thursday, April 24, the Dalai Lama is scheduled to give a public talk
at Colgate. More details about the lecture, including ticket
information, will be released in the near future.

the Dalai Lama, Tibet, and Buddhism will be held on campus.

The Dalai Lama has spent the last half-century as an international
political leader, advocating for freedom of the people of Tibet,
opposing violence, and calling for respect of human rights worldwide.

The Global Leaders Lecture Series, funded primarily by the Society of
Families, allows the university to invite world-renowned speakers to campus.

The inaugural lecture series was held last April with Steven Levitt and
Stephen Dubner, award-winning authors of Freakanomics: A Rogue Economist
Explores the Hidden Side of Everything.
