UA Poetry Center Dorothy Rubel Room Helen S. Schaefer Building, 1508 E. Helen St. FREE Parking after 5 PM

A true melting pot, the UA and Tucson landscapes have changed dramatically in response to social changes and our ever-evolving world. As a community, how do we make adjustments to help us be as successful as possible in such a diverse and global world? In creating safe places for everyone, students, staff and the community must learn how to adapt to new situations and cultures. Discuss key concepts of intercultural competence with a panel of faculty and international students as they share their efforts to make the UA a refuge for people from across the globe, who bring with them cultural diversity that enriches the entire UA and Tucson community.

Part of the Tucson Humanities Festival, a series of topical lectures, panel discussions and events presented by UA College of Humanities faculty and special guests. For more information, including the Festival schedule and presenters, go to
