Carnegie Mellon To Celebrate Scottish Heritage With Visit and Talk by Scottish Government Official

Michael Russell, the Scottish Government Cabinet Secretary for Education and Lifelong Learning, will visit Carnegie Mellon University on April 5 at 2 p.m. and give a talk titled "Scotland: A New Future Building on a Great Past." The talk is free and open to the public.

Russell's talk is part of Scotland Week 2010, which runs from April 3-10. As part of the celebration, three Scottish government ministers will be traveling to the United States and Canada to promote the themes of Scotland Week, including Great Scots and Innovation, which draw strong connections to Carnegie Mellon.

While Russell is on Carnegie Mellon's campus, he will bring attention to common Scottish ties, such as the university founder Andrew Carnegie, and he will learn more about the university's programs and innovations that have made it a world-renowned institution.

Where: McKenna/Peter/Wright Rooms, University Center, Carnegie Mellon University.
