    Events on our site are usually free and public. If not, it will be noted.

    You can get a list of upcoming events here or here.

    The lecture by Tiya Miles won’t be repeated, and likely won’t be recorded (since it’s off campus). It’s the end of the semester, so events are winding down, but you might like Ethnic Identity Development in a Changing World on May 15.
