About this Event

Host Organization: The Department of University Advancement

Join us for the fall leadership luncheon on Monday, October 23rd, 11:30am – 1:30pm, atop the Westin Ottawa in the new TwentyTwo space.

Keynote speaker, Physicist/Cosmologist Lawrence Krauss, will speak on Science & Democracy

Price: $50 per person (3 course served lunch, coffee/tea, cash bar)

Citizens that are skeptical, who demand evidence, and who examine different sources bolster democracy. Lawrence Krauss, BSc/77, internationally renowned theoretical physicist and director of the Origins Project at Arizona State University, will give a keynote address on Science and Democracy and will participate in a Q&A session at this signature event. Join fellow graduates for a sumptuous meal and an exchange of ideas and views.
