ATLANTA (AP) - The Dalai Lama is returning to Emory University as part of a continuing partnership between the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader and the school in Atlanta.

The Dalai Lama has held the title of presidential distinguished professor at Emory since October 2007. He's scheduled to participate in a series of lectures and panel discussions Tuesday through Thursday.

The focus of this visit is "secular ethics," which is described as a system of shared principles that go beyond religious differences while still respecting and valuing the significance of religion in people's lives.

The Dalai Lama has visited Emory's campus five times, including multiday visits in 2007 and 2010.

Faculty and students from Emory travel each year to the Dalai Lama's home of Dharamsala, India, to work with monks and nuns.
