United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will be the keynote speaker at the 14th annual Korbel Dinner on Aug. 24 at the Hyatt Regency Denver.
The Josef Korbel School of International Studies is honoring him with the University of Denver’s Global Advancement Award.
As the eighth secretary-general, Ban Ki-moon has sought to strengthen the United Nations, help countries facing crisis, empower women and promote sustainable development.
“We are honored to host Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon along with the other distinguished honorees at the Joseph Korbel School of International Studies,” says Christopher Hill, Korbel dean and former U.S. Ambassador to Iraq. “It will be a great opportunity for our students and the Denver community to hear from the man who is trying to mobilize nations.”
