Racing and Erasing History

September 28, 2020

Panelists: James Garza, Kristen Hoerl, Casey Kelly, and Cynthia Willis-Esqueda

Moderator: Sergio Wals

Is is right to tear down historic statues? When should a sports team's mascot be changed? Should buildings named after slaveholders be renamed? How can we make decisions that are fair?

Colloquia and guest speakers

We offer regular colloquia in which a panel of our faculty members discusses issues relevant to current events and to their own research and then facilitates a community discussion of the topic. We also regularly host guest speakers who talk on a variety of topics. All our events are free and open to the public.

Spring Celebration

Each spring, we celebrated another year of success and service with our Spring Celebration, which brings nationally recognized speakers to campus for lectures and receptions with students, staff, faculty, and the public.
