Hosted by the St Andrew’s Foundation in the School of Education, the lecture – named after the late Cardinal Thomas Winning – is an opportunity for leading thinkers to give their views on the role of the Catholic community in Scotland, Scottish education and the public space, and will take place in the Bute Hall at 10.30am.

As a Glasgow alumna, the University is particularly pleased to host the First Minister, who follows on from her predecessors Alex Salmond and Donald Dewar in giving this prestigious lecture, and reaffirms the University of Glasgow as Scotland’s premier forum for leading figures to contribute to the public debate.
