Trinity University Announces Distinguished Lecture Speakers for 2010-2011


SAN ANTONIO A dynamic corporate leader and a Washington insider will visit Trinity University during the 2010-2011 academic year, as part of the Trinity University Distinguished Lecture Series. Both lectures are free and open to the public and seating is available on a first-come, first-seated basis. Tickets or reservations are not required.  


Anne M. Mulcahy

The fall lecture will be presented by the former chairman and CEO of Xerox Corporation, Anne M. Mulcahy, at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 6, in Laurie Auditorium. Peter R. Orszag, who served in the Bush and Obama administrations, will speak at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 24, 2011, also in Laurie Auditorium.


Mulcahy began her career at the Xerox Corporation in 1976 as a field sales representative, taking on increasingly responsible sales and senior management positions before assuming the top job. Serving as chairman and CEO from 2001 to 2009, she built a new leadership team, cut 30 percent of the least-profitable lines of business, refocused the company on higher-growth operations and inspired others to join in reenergizing Xerox for the 21st century. Voted “CEO of the Year” by CEO Magazine, and one of “America’s Best Leaders” by U.S. News & World Report, she was also a longtime favorite on the FORTUNE, Forbes, and Wall Street Journal’s lists of most powerful women. She earned a bachelor of arts in English/Journalism from Marymount College in Tarrytown, N.Y. Mulcahy, a role model and an advocate for social causes, is now serving as chairman of Save the Children.


Peter R. Orszag

Orszag was director of the Congressional Budget Office for two years while George W. Bush was president before joining the Obama administration to head the Office of Management and Budget where he oversaw the nation’s budget, advised President Obama on fiscal policy, mapped the annual budget sent to Congress, and devised legislative strategy required to implement fiscal reform. He served in the Obama administration until July and is currently a Distinguished Visiting Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations and a member of the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies of Sciences. He obtained a doctorate in economics from the London School of Economics, which he attended as a Marshall Scholar. He has co-authored or co-edited a number of books, including Protecting the Homeland, Aging Gracefully: Ideas to Improve Retirement Security in America, Saving Social Security: A Balanced Approach, and American Economic Policy in the 1990s.


The Trinity University Distinguished Lecture Series is made possible by an endowment gift from Mr. and Mrs. Walter F. Brown of San Antonio.
