The local media has been covering the upcoming visit of the 14th Dalai Lama to Orange County, and UCI, on July 5-7, 2015. Among the programs planned for this three-day series of events is a celebration of his 80th birthday. The Dalai Lama has been on the UCI campus at least three times before. He was here in 2004 and 2011. The UC Irvine XIV Dalai Lama Endowed Scholarship was established in honor of his 2004 visit, and he was here in 2011 for the scholarship celebration, again. However, the Dalai Lama was first here in the 1980s when he spoke at the Bren Center on Thursday, October 5 and Friday, October 6, 1989 as part of the “Sacred Voices, Sacred Sounds” week-long event. Below is an article from the New U about that visit, from collections in Special Collections and Archives. He also was presented with the Noble Peace Prize in 1989.
