Sunday night's Ubben Lecture at DePauw University by Blake Mycoskie, social entrepreneurship and founder of TOMS, will be webcast live and can be seen anywhere in the world via the Internet.  The stream can be accessed through this link, and will remain available after the event for a limited time.

Doors at Kresge Auditorium, located within Green Center for the Performing Arts, will open at 5:45 p.m. for students with DePauw ID and 6 p.m. for all others.  The speech, "Conscious Capitalism and the Future of Business," will begin at 7 p.m.  Like all Ubben Lectures, the event is presented free of admission charge.

In the event Kresge Auditorium fills to capacity, overflow seating will be available in Moore Theatre, where the event can be viewed via a closed circuit video feed.

Since its founding in 2006, TOMS has given ten million pairs of new shoes to children in need. Learn more about Mycoskie, the author of the book, Start Something That Matters, and Sunday's event in this previous announcement.

Established in 1986 through the generous support of 1958 DePauw graduates Timothy H. and Sharon Williams Ubben, the Ubben Lecture Series was designed to "bring the world to Greencastle." Three Ubben Lectures have already been presented during the 2013-14 academic year: human rights advocate Martin Luther King III spoke on November 21DSC 8779 Fox News Channel anchor and 1992 DePauw graduate Bret Baier visited on October 12; and former congressman and three-time presidential candidate Ron Paul (pictured at left) delivered a September 10 speech.  Previous guests have included Bill Clinton, Margaret Thatcher, Mikhail Gorbachev, Benazir Bhutto and Tony Blair.
