An award-winning actor turned health activist, a media trailblazer and a pastor-philanthropist are among the speakers for the 2010-2011 Willis M. Tate Distinguished Lecture Series at SMU. In its 29th year, the Tate Series will once again bring prominent leaders from diverse fields to share their unique perspectives with area residents and students.
“We are proud of the wide variety of topics and viewpoints reflected in this season’s speakers,” said Lucy Billingsley, chair of the Tate Lecture Series Board of Directors. “The Tate Lecture Series upholds the high standards of SMU by presenting engaging speakers with intellectually stimulating and forward-thinking topics. We look forward to the wealth of knowledge and insights shared with our campus and surrounding communities.”
“The Tate Lecture Series offers tremendous opportunities for our community to hear from internationally recognized speakers,” said Brad Cheves, SMU’s vice president for development and external affairs. “The Turner Construction/Wells Fargo Student Forum makes these speakers available to area high school students, SMU students, faculty and staff. This year’s lineup, with expertise ranging from economics to technology, is filled with some of the most fascinating people of our time.”
