Former Ireland President Mary Robinson to Visit Campus, Will Speak at Eisenhower

Mary Robinson, the first female President of Ireland and seventh overall, will visit Penn State on March 13. The event, called “The Future of Global Ethical Leadership,” will be held at Eisenhower Auditorium  in conjunction with the Schreyer Honors College and the Student Programming Association.

A teaser for the event was announced at last night’s John Legend event and documents filed to the university confirmed the date and nature of the visit. Robinson is one of the higher profile speakers SPA has been able to bring in, and was awarded the 2009 Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Barack Obama.

Tickets will be free although times and locations for distribution have not been determined. Robinson will likely speak on her impressive résumé in social justice advocacy as the former United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights and the founder of The Mary Robinson Foundation which fights for global equality.
