LeVar Burton, who was slated to speak on April 14, has been rescheduled for April 27 at 7 p.m. at the Gallogly Events Center.
Stephen Cucchiara, assistant director of the Office of Student Activities, said that Burton, “Reading Rainbow” host and former “Star Trek” actor, was invited to the White House as a special guest to the president and vice president.
“He really did not want to cancel, so they worked with us. April 27 was the day that worked for them and worked for us,” Cucchiara said.
Tickets purchased for the April 14 date will be honored. Those who purchased tickets on campus but cannot attend on the new date should go the University Center front desk with the ticket and valid identification to receive a refund.
Additional tickets are available at the University Center front desk.
Burton will speak about literacy in America as part of the UCCS Significant Speaker Series.
