Former U.S. Environmental Protection Agency administrator Carol Browner will deliver the annual Conradin von Gugelberg Memorial Lecture on the Environment at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 11, in Bishop Auditorium at the Graduate School of Business.

The lecture, "Global Warming: Coming Soon to a City Near You," is free and open to the Stanford community, but seating is limited. A reception will follow.

During her time as EPA administrator in the Clinton administration, Browner oversaw a $7 billion, 18,000-employee agency responsible for protecting the public's air, water and health. A lawyer, Browner is now a principal with the Albright Group LLC, a global strategy firm in Washington, D.C., founded by former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.

The MBA Class of 1987 established the lecture series and a memorial fund to honor von Gugelberg, a classmate known for his commitment to environmental protection. The von Gugelberg Fund aims to promote an environmental ethic among students and alumni of the Graduate School of Business.
