The Landregan Lecture brings to the University of Dallas campus nationally prominent figures, whose area of expertise reflects the many interests that have animated University of Dallas alumnus Steven T.

At the beginning of the lecture, the University of Dallas School of Ministry will honor their 2013 Distinguished Alumni Award winners for their exemplary service to the local church in general, the work of faith formation in particular, and the larger community, especially the poor and needy.
