The Jandon Center is committed to being a good neighbor and community member. We know that college-community partnerships not only sustain stronger communities and advance community goals, but they also support and advance our goals as an educational institution.


Ireland: Overcoming Divided Histories

This project, coordinated by the Jandon Center and the Lewis Global Studies Center, involves examining different views of Irish identity and explores how they are represented in the urban landscapes of Belfast and Dublin. We explore how artists and writers respond to those divisions and propose alternative futures. Participants walk the streets of both cities, meeting local activists, artists and writers, and sampling local culture, with ample time for reflection and dialogue.
Save the date: May 20–31, 2019
