University Forum

Since 1974, the University Forum has been the premier speaker series at the University of Southern Mississippi. Next up, on Tuesday, April 10 in Bennett Auditorium, we welcome Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Nicholas Kristof.

Nicolas Kristof

Nominated for the Pulitzer Prize seven times and twice the winner, The New York Times op-ed columnist Nicholas Kristof has spent a lifetime reporting on and writing about human rights abuses and social injustices. Mr. Kristof and his spouse, formerTimes correspondent Sheryl WuDunn, have authored four books, including the number one New York Timesbestseller, Half the Sky: From Oppression to Opportunity for Women Worldwide.

At Southern Miss, Kristof will discuss the hundred thousand underage girls that are trafficked into the sex trade each year in the United States and share insights about a global crisis in human trafficking that hits closer to home than most want to believe.

University Forum is free and open to the public, courtesy of the Honors College with generous support from the Office of the President.
