Upcoming Center for Mission Events

As summer leans into autumn and the new academic year, calling us again to our work with our students and with each other, we look forward to marking the weeks and months ahead with conversations and dialogue that attend to our tripartite mission. Here is what we have in store so that we may continue to grow and learn in community.
