July 18: Legal immigration policies have been heavily covered in the news for the past few months:  travel bans, extreme vetting, hire American, visa delays… but what does any of it actually mean?  Immigration advisors from International Programs will cover some basic U.S. immigration concepts and visa categories with a more specific focus on how some U.S. immigration policies and procedures impact research universities like KU and who gets to stay in the U.S.  2-3 p.m., Stauffer-Flint 100.

July 25:  When is it OK to laugh? If there is a line, what is it? What role can comedy play in helping us confront difficult topics? Using comedy video clips, Dr. John Gronbeck-Tedesco will help us examine intercultural issues through the lens of comedy.  2-3 p.m., Stauffer-Flint 100.
