Gear up for the spring 2019 "American Dream" Theme Semester! Explore opportunities to get involved today.

The spring 2019 Theme Semester, "American Dream", asks how can our university equitably serve in the 21st century. What do Americans desire? How can we imagine an American dream that embodies the values and aspirations of all Americans? How do we ensure that all Americans have an equitable say, that all exert agency over their lives, that we treat everyone with compassion and respect? How do we imagine a dream that replaces exclusion with inclusion? What does the American Dream mean to the most diverse generation in this country’s history?
