Dear Faculty and Staff,

Due to overwhelming student demand, tickets to the April 26 afternoon lecture by His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama sold out to Loyola undergraduate and graduate students in less than 24 hours.

Regrettably, this means we do not have any tickets available to sell to faculty, staff, and alumni. Tickets may still be available for the morning program, which will also be held on Loyola’s Lake Shore Campus, but will be hosted by the TIBETcenter of Chicago. Please visit the TIBETcenter’s website directly to inquire about the availability of tickets for that separate event.

We are delighted that so many of our students are enthusiastic about the opportunity to attend this event with His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama, who has spent a large amount of time in recent years reaching out to students at educational institutions throughout the world. We are equally grateful to all the faculty and staff at Loyola who have contributed this year to educational programs and activities intended to raise student awareness of, and interest in, the significance of the Dalai Lama’s visit to Loyola University Chicago.

We are honored to host his visit to campus and we encourage your participation in the many educational activities leading up to his visit on April 26. We hope to be able to record his speech to our students, which we would then post online at in early May.
