His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Friday, Jan. 24, 2014
His Holiness the Dalai Lama

On February 24, we have the great honor of hosting His Holiness the Dalai Lama for a public event co-sponsored by the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics and Stanford University's Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education. The Dalai Lama will be joined by the CEO of Dignity Health, Lloyd Dean, for a talk, "Compassion, Business, and Ethics: A Dialogue with the Dalai Lama."

Throughout its history, Santa Clara has promoted the critical role of compassion in our graduates and in leaders of all sectors of society. To have the Dalai Lama choose to come to Santa Clara for this important dialogue affirms our commitment to the teaching, learning and practice of compassion, especially here in the heart of Silicon Valley. For paid ticketing, all proceeds from ticket sales will go toward covering the costs of the event. Should there be any surplus, it will be donated to community and charitable organizations. Neither Santa Clara University nor the Dalai Lama will profit from this event.  For more information about the Dalai Lama and his visit to Santa Clara, see the website.
