His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, spiritual leader of Tibet, will receive an honorary doctorate of humane letters and deliver the keynote address to graduates at Tulane University’s 2013 Commencement, which will take place at 9 a.m., May 18 in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
“We are honored and excited to host a leader of such universal renown, whose wisdom, humility, kindness and humor have won him worldwide admiration,” Tulane President Scott Cowen said. “The Dalai Lama’s message of compassion, humanity, equality, peace and service truly resonates with the Tulane community and its graduates.”
“Each year we try to make Commencement something our graduates will remember for the rest of their lives. This year, with the participation of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, I have no doubt we will do just that and more,” Cowen said.
