Global citizenship brings USC professor to HPU
According to the U.S. News and World Report, HPU has one of the most diverse student populations in the nation. With students from more than 100 different countries, multiracial interactions are common for HPU students. That doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be studied, and HPU’s global citizenship program does this. From Feb. 9-11, it sponsored a series of talks by George Sanchez, a professor of history and American studies and ethnicity at the University of Southern California. [More]

The view wasn’t as good, and it was harder to get to, but the ground was firmer. Eventually the rains came down, the floods came up, and the house on the sand went splat. The story suggests who was foolish and who was wise. [More]
