Beginning immediately, members of the campus community (students, faculty, staff, and retirees) may order tickets for any or all of three events at www.goleopardstickets.com. Orders will be limited to one ticket per person for each event. Tickets ordered by students, faculty, staff, and retirees will be available for pick-up at the Athletic Ticket Office in Kirby Sports Center beginning Monday, March 18.

Beginning Wednesday, March 6, any remaining tickets for any of the events will be made available to alumni, parents, and the general public via online ordering at www.goleopardstickets.com. Beginning that day, an alumnus/a, a parent, or a member of the public may order one ticket for each event while supplies last.

Also beginning March 6, students, faculty, staff, and retirees may order one ticket per person for each event, while supplies last, even if they have already placed a ticket order during the previous ordering phase.

Tony Blair will deliver the Lives of Liberty Lecture for 2012-13 4 p.m. Monday, April 8.

  • The venue for Tony Blair’s address has not yet been announced. Tickets will be required for entry to this event. All tickets are non-transferable, and photo identification will be necessary to enter the venue.
Jane Goodall

Jane Goodall will deliver the Thomas Roy and Lura Forrest Jones Visiting Lecture for 2012-13 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 11.

Jimmy Carter will deliver the inaugural Robert ’69 and Margaret Pastor Lecture in International Affairs 4 p.m. Monday, April 22.

  • The venue for President Carter’s address was announced previously. If the address is held in the rain site, tickets will be required.

All events are free of charge, and tickets are not transferable.

Seating for Tony Blair and Jane Goodall (and for President Carter, if the event is held inside) is limited. Because of scheduled renovations, the Kirby Sports Center arena, the venue for last year’s addresses by Mikhail Gorbachev and Vice President Biden, is not available for the events this spring.
