Emory University will host its 11th annual Tibet Week March 28-April 2.

The series of events will feature music, art and discussions highlighting the culture of the famous Buddhist people group from the Himalayan region now controlled by China.

The Dalai Lama, the exiled spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism, officially became a presidential distinguished professor during a trip to Emory in 2007. He lectured at Emory again last October.

Emory maintains an educational partnership with the Tibetan government-in-exile focused on combining the best of Western and Tibetan academic traditions.

The Dalai Lama announced March 11 that he would step down from his role as political leader of the government-in-exile.
