SMU Tate Lecture: David Leonhardt
Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist David Leonhardt will speak at the Willis M. Tate Distinguished Lecture Series. A veteran of The New York Times since 1999, Leonhardt joined the paper's op-ed staff in 2016. Previously, he was The Times' Washington bureau chief, a staff writer for its Sunday magazine and the founding editor of The Upshot, a Times site that uses graphics and data to engage readers. In 2011, he won the Pulitzer Prize for commentary on the U.S. economic crisis.
Leonhardt will be available to answer questions at the Student Forum at 4:30 pm in Hughes-Trigg Student Center Ballroom. The student forum enables high school students, SMU students, staff and faculty to discuss Leonhardt’s experience with him through a lively question-and-answer session before the evening lecture.
