In February 2014, representatives from CU Student Government and the Tibetan Association of Colorado traveled to California to meet with the Dalai Lama.

The University of Colorado Boulder will host His Holiness the Dalai Lama on Oct. 20 and 21 of this year, the university and the Tibetan Association of Colorado announced Tuesday.

The university says a detailed schedule for the visit and ticket information will be announced "in the months ahead."

Student leaders and representatives from the Tibetans Association of Colorado met with the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader in California last year to extend an invitation for a visit to Boulder.

"We’re beyond thrilled to host His Holiness and hear his message of peace and compassion,” Lora Roberts, CUSG president of internal affairs, said in a statement. “This visit has been more than a year in the making. A group of CUSG and TAC leaders watched His Holiness give a speech at Santa Clara University and then met with him afterward to respectfully encourage him to come to Boulder. We are pleased that he graciously accepted this invitation. Our students and the entire region will benefit from his visit.”

The Boulder Daily Camera broke the news of the Dalai Lama's visit late last week.
