The Dalai Lama has been tabbed as the speaker of the commencement address at UC San Diego, which will take place in less than five months. The California campus made the announcement Thursday.

Tenzin Gyatso is the official name of the 14th dalai lama, who will impart his wisdom on the San Diego school, which had more than 33,000 students enrolled in its campus as of 2015. The upcoming commencement address will take place on June 17, which will mark the end of the collegiate journey for many, as well as the end of advanced studies or graduate school for many others.

Details of his upcoming visit to the West Coast

The Dalai Lama is the spiritual leader of Tibet and he will actually show up to UC San Diego -- where there have been recent developments to advance 3D gaming -- the day prior to the address in order to give another speech that is optional, but highly recommended due to the knowledge and wisdom he will share with the new generation of young people, or Millennials. That first address is open to the public

The 2017 visit marks his second trip to the California city as he gave speeches at UC San Diego, University of San Diego and San Diego University back in 2012. Campus Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla spoke about the Tibetan leader's upcoming visit, noting that the campus is "honored to host His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama at UC San Diego and is thankful that he will share messages of global compassion with our graduates and their families, as well as with a broad public audience."

What are his greatest achievements?

One of the most notable journeys of the Dalai Lama's life comes in the form of him fleeing to India during the 1959 Tibetan uprising.

To this day, he lives as a refugee in the Asian country, but continues to serve as the spiritual leader of Tibet. He has held the title since 1940 when he was only a five-year old child following the arduous and meticulous process of finding the new Dalai Lama, which requires the wisdom of some of the world's greatest spiritual leaders.

As far as his contributions to the world goes, the Dalai Lama has spoken in favor of women's rights, the importance of taking care of the environment, the power of non-violence in our society, science, the importance of having an open dialogue between all faiths and plenty of counsel on what the world needs to do moving forward to find stability.

He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989 thanks to his contributions to the planet.
