Discounted tickets are still available to faculty and staff for the March 16 lecture by New York Times columnist David Brooks. Faculty and staff can purchase two tickets at half price — the cost per ticket is $10 through the Chiles Center Box Office only (x7525). Additional tickets are available at the full rate of $20 or $25 per ticket, depending on the section. A total of 650 free tickets are also available for UP students.
Brooks hosts National Public Radio’s All Things Considered, is a frequent contributor on Meet the Press, and is author of The Road to Character. His lecture, which is open to the public, will be sponsored by UP’s Dundon-Berchtold Institute for Moral Formation and Applied Ethics, Providence Health and Services, AAA Oregon/Idaho, and Nossa Familia Coffee.
Brooks has a gift for bringing audiences face to face with the spirit of our times with humor, insight, and quiet passion. His current book, The Road to Character, explores the road to a deeper inner life and explains why selflessness leads to greater success. His previous books include The Social Animal, On Paradise Drive, and Bobos in Paradise.
UP established the Dundon-Berchtold Institute for Moral Formation and Applied Ethics in 2012. The Institute is designed to ensure that the University meets its aspirations both to form the moral character of its students and to encourage sustained ethical reflection in business, science, engineering, education, health care, and the arts.
