Former Vice President Al Gore

The Wilson Lecture: Al Gore

Apr 25, 5:30 PM
Alumnae Hall Auditorium

Wellesley is excited to welcome former Vice President Al Gore to campus to deliver this year’s Wilson Lecture. The annual Wilson Lecture, which brings internationally influential speakers to Wellesley, is the highlight of Wellesley’s academic calendar and its premier academic lecture.

The 45th vice president of the United States, Al Gore was inaugurated on January 20, 1993, and served eight years in the position. Previously, he was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives beginning in 1976 and of the U.S. Senate from 1984 until he became vice president.

Gore is cofounder and chairman of Generation Investment Management, a senior partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, and a member of Apple Inc.’s board of directors. He currently spends the majority of his time working with the Climate Reality Project, a nonprofit devoted to solving the climate crisis, of which he is the chairman.

Gore’s address will serve as a touchstone event during the College’s Sustainability Year, which in September kicked off a campus-wide conversation about what sustainability means to us as individuals and as an academic and residential community.

The Wilson Lecture is free and open to the public, though it is a ticketed event. More details will be announced about ticketing in the coming weeks.

This event will be live streamed on
