“We realized that our campus observation offers
remarkable opportunities for insight and engagement, and
wanted to share it.We all know that there is community in
diversity and our ‘Voces’ Celebration certainly underscored
this. Events were free of charge, open to the public, and an
online calendar and active social media campaign provided
opportunities to learn more,” she observed.

Series by Raquel Valle-Senties, a Borderlands History Lecture,
live Sharkey Corrigan Organ accompaniment of El
