 Exploring Shared Values

2013 President’s Speaker Series kicks off with sold-out lecture and an added event

During this year’s President’s Speaker Series, audiences will be taken inside the White House after the 9/11 attacks, discuss the relationship between professional sports teams and their communities, and explore the gap between rhetoric and reality when it comes to Muslims in America. 

The series enters its eighth year and will feature former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice, San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York, and author Eboo Patel offering their perspectives on this year’s theme: “Shared Values in the World, the Nation, and the Community.”

All events will be held in the Louis B. Mayer Theatre. General admission tickets are $25 each and available to staff and faculty at a discounted rate of $20. Tickets for the Condoleezza Rice event is sold out. For tickets or more information, go to or call 408-554-4015.
