Earlier this week, The Marshall Lecture Series, made possible by Ms. Donna Ensign Marshall —a Stephens alumna and former member of the Stephens College Board of Trustees — presented a lecture about Bhutan, a country that bases its success on the concept of Gross National Happiness.

During the lecture, titled “Bhutan: Development with Values,” attendees learned how this isolated Himalayan kingdom was able to take a much different path toward development and arrive as one of the world’s youngest democracies.

The speakers were Dr. Bruce W. Bunting, president of the Bhutan Foundation, and Ms. Tshering Yangzom, director of programs and external relations. Marshall served as the moderator for the presentation.
