Tuesday Devotionals and Forums are a highlight in many students’ week. Each semester, BYU’s calendar is always filled with excellent speakers for Devotionals and Forums, and this semester is no exception.
Here are three (in order of occurrence) that shouldn’t be missed:
- Vali Nasr, dean of the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, will speak at the Oct. 21 forum. Nasr is a leading authority on Islamic and Middle Eastern politics. Read his Johns Hopkins faculty biography here, and follow him on Twitter @vali_nasr. Here you can read Nasr’s take on Iraq-Iran relations.
2. At the Forum on Nov. 18, Governor Mitt Romney will address the BYU community. Mitt Romney, a member of the LDS Church, is best known for his 2012 presidential campaign against President Barack Obama. He was the chair of the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics. Follow him on Twitter @MittRomney, and read this New York Times profile from September.
3. The final Devotional of the semester will be delivered by Elder Erich W. Kopischke of the First Quorum of the Seventy. Elder Kopischke is from Elmshorn, Germany, and much of his Church service has been Europe. He has served on the First Quorum of the Seventy since March of 2007.
