SMU and the George W. Bush Presidential Center, in conjunction with the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth, present

A Conversation with His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

The Dalai Lama’s visit to Dallas was just days before his 80th birthday on July 6 – a birth-date that he shares with former President George W. Bush. The Dalai Lama last visited the SMU campus on May 9, 2011, speaking to more than 2,500 at McFarlin Auditorium during a special Hart Global Leaders lecture. He was awarded an honorary doctorate from SMU at that event.
