#var:page_name# cover

In celebration of our student scholars and photographers, we cordially invite you to a Student Forum & Photo Exhibit. Refreshments will be served.

To wrap up our 25th anniversary celebration and kick off Alumni Weekend, please join us for a free, public gala that showcases the work on borders, labor, home, and mobility by our remarkable undergraduate and graduate students. Four students will offer brief presentations about their cutting-edge research, and we'll exhibit the first-, second-, and third-place photos in our inaugural photo scholarship.

Free, public event. Please register in advance.
