These courses are all 3 week courses that begin May 16th and will fulfill the credits for both Humanities and Global Studies.

What a Success
Our exciting event, Creating Justice, has come to an end, but it is time to thank the presenters, sponsors, and of course the audience. We had an amazing turn out of over 200 people, and we are glad to hear such great responses from those who attended. We all came together to share new and eye-opening ideas and stories, and through presentations and workshops, we truly created a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Let us not forget the amazing food and live music that we danced to in the evening. Thank you all for making Creating Justice 2016 such a success, and we hope to see you all again next Spring.
