British Ambassador to Speak at IU Bloomington

Sir Nigel Sheinwald, the United Kingdom's ambassador to the United States, will visit Indiana University Bloomington Thursday (15 April) to give a lecture and meet with students, faculty members and university officials, reports the I.U. News Bureau.

Sheinwald, the British ambassador to the U.S. since October 2007, will speak on "The 21st Century World: Europe's Role" at 6 p.m. Thursday in the Tudor Room of the Indiana Memorial Union. The lecture is free and open to the public.

Indiana University has numerous connections with institutions in the United Kingdom, especially Oxford and Cambridge universities, including programs in information technology, life sciences, philosophy, optometry, anthropology and library and information sciences. The U.K. has been the No. 2 destination for Indiana University students in study-abroad programs.
