Sorry — The Registration Book for this Event has closed.
This year’s UN Day Luncheon is going to be our best ever! OK, we always say that … and, as ever, we really mean it!
Dr. Don Betz — president of the University of Central Oklahoma — will be our host and our keynote speaker on Saturday, October 26th.
Yes, of course, you’re invited to attend. Keep reading for details on how to reserve your tickets.
President Betz will speak on a topic that is being discussed right now in the UN General Assembly: Progress toward meeting the UN Millennium Development Goals.
We have also asked Dr. Betz to give us a brief description of the UN’s Academic Impact initiative — which recognizes the critical role of higher education in economic and social development and as a foundation for world peace. (You may know that UCO was the first university in Oklahoma to sign on to the principles of the UN’s Academic Impact, which includes support for human rights, literacy, sustainability, conflict resolution, and more).
We’ll start gathering for lunch at 11:30am. The registration table will open, and we’ll sit down for our meal and program at 12 Noon.
Our venue will be the Heritage Room in UCO’s Nigh Center, 700 East Main Street, in Edmond.
