“Beyond the Summit” with Michael Brown (Geog’90)
Brown will talk about his amazing work capturing the triumph of the human spirit in places as treacherous as the summit of Mount Everest and as lonely as the ice-covered regions of Antarctica. He also will discuss his path to success and the important role leadership has played.
His acclaimed 2003 documentary Farther than the Eye Can See followed Golden-based blind climber Erik Weihenmayer’s expedition on Mount Everest with guide Jeff Evans (Anth’94). Brown will speak for 45 minutes and show 4-5 film clips before opening his presentation up to the audience for questions.
Brown is one of this year’s George Norlin Award winners, a prestigious Alumni Association award that recognizes outstanding alumni who have demonstrated a commitment to excellence in their chosen field and a devotion to the betterment of society and their community.
The cost is $15 (complimentary for students and Herd Members) and includes lunch in the Glenn Miller Ballroom in the University Memorial Center on the Boulder campus. Online registration for this event is now closed. A limited number of walk-ups will be accepted at the door.
