Barrett, The Honors College will be hosting Jose Antonio Vargas as the 2019 Flinn Foundation Centennial Lecturer featuring his keynote titled “Define American: My Life as an Undocumented Immigrant”.
The lecture will be taking place on Thursday, September 19th 7:30 p.m. at the Tempe Center for the Arts.
(Tickets are free, but service charges may apply).
In 1985, the Flinn Foundation established an endowment to commemorate the University’s 100th year. The gift created the ASU Centennial Lecture, and in 1989 it provided the Barrett Honors College the resources to bring some of the world’s most influential intellects to campus.
In just a few short years, the Centennial Lecture has become one of ASU’s premiere intellectual events featuring noted diplomats, scientists, playwrights, and authors. Each of the women and men chosen as the Centennial Lecturer has added significantly to the strength of the University, and each has provided students and members of the community with a memorable experience.
