REDLANDS, Nov. 1, 2013 – The University of Redlands Office of the Chaplain and the Office of Campus Diversity and Inclusion have invited author Paul Loeb to speak as part of the Cummings Lecture on World Peace series. The event will take place on Nov. 13 at 7 p.m. at the Casa Loma Room at the University of Redlands.
The Cummings Lecture on World Peace is a lecture designed to explore topics relating to peace and reconciliation on a national and global scale. The lecture was inaugurated in 1990 and is made possible by the estate of Oliver deWolf, a University of Redlands 1921 alumnus and Edith M. Cummings. Some of the previous speakers for the series include Diane Nash, Dr. Charles Kimball, Richard Falk, Olin Clyde Robison and Penda Hair.
Paul Loeb has more than 30 years of experience in research about citizen responsibility and empowerment-asking what makes some people choose lives of social commitment, while others abstain. In 2008 he founded and coordinated the Campus Election Engagement Project, a non-partisan effort which helped 500 colleges and universities enroll three million students in order to engage their students with the election. He ran the project again for 2012 working with close to 700 campuses.
