Alvernia University announces 2019 Hesburgh Lecture
What: Explore the dynamic between national politics and religion during a lecture titled “Does Religion Do More to Divide or Unite Americans?” presented by University of Notre Dame professor Dr. David Campbell.

Who: The lecture is co-sponsored by Alvernia University’s Holleran Center for Community and Global Engagement and the Notre Dame Club of Reading.
When: Monday, March 25, 2019. The lecture begins at 7 p.m. ET
Where: McGlinn Conference Center, 460 St. Bernardine St., Reading
Why: Since 1986, the Hesburgh Lecture Series has brought a taste of Notre Dame’s academic excellence to Alvernia’s campus courtesy of the Notre Dame Club of Reading, which supports the event. The lectures perpetuate the example of President Emeritus Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh as a lifelong learner and further the Alumni Association’s mission by providing meaningful opportunities to Notre Dame alumni, parents and friends.
