BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The dates for the visit to the University at Buffalo by His Holiness the Dalai Lama have been changed to Sept. 18-20, 2006.

Stephen C. Dunnett, UB vice provost for international education and co-chair of the committee planning the visit, said the dates were changed in conjunction with an invitation to the Dalai Lama to attend a gathering of Nobel Peace Prize laureates in Denver prior to his visit to Buffalo.

During his visit to Buffalo, the Dalai Lama will participate in two public ticketed events: an address in UB Stadium on the North (Amherst) Campus as part of the university's Distinguished Speakers Series and an interfaith service to be held in Alumni Arena on the North Campus. The visit originally was scheduled for Sept. 21-23.

"Planning for the major events of His Holiness's visit is well underway," Dunnett said. "During the spring semester the pace of preparations will quicken as we get ready for this landmark event in the life of our university."
