Vice Consul to U.S. Embassy in Mexico to discuss immigration July 18

Brigham Young University’s David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies will host a Global Awareness Lecture featuring the vice consul of the U.S. Embassy in Guadalajara, Mexico, Wednesday, July 18, at noon in 238 Herald R. Clark Building.

Admission to the lecture is free, and the public is welcome to attend. The topic will be “U.S. Immigration Perspectives from a U.S. Foreign Service Officer.”

Alexander Hawkes’ visit to BYU is part of the U.S. Department of State’s Hometown Diplomat Program. The program is designed to build-up relationships with local communities through diplomats volunteering their time during visits to their hometowns to speak with organizations and students.

Before Hawkes, who is a BYU alumnus, began work for the State Department, he worked for the Gallup Organization, a political polling and consulting company. During his last two years with Gallup, he conducted brand equity studies and brand awareness studies for clients such as Disney, Lexus, Toyota, Wal-Mart and Gap Inc.

This lecture will be archived online. For more information on David M. Kennedy Center events, see the calendar online at kennedy.byu.edu.
