Details

The border and our binational relationship are under withering political assault. In the U.S., the border is often framed as a breeding ground for crime and chaos. In Mexico, the border has increasingly become a symbol of American arrogance and discrimination. However, the border is a vibrant space, a source of boundless creativity and hope, and a vital economic hub. Dr. Everard Meade, Director of the Trans-Border Institute, will explore how we can leverage the dynamism and collaborative spirit of the border to develop sustainable solutions to the most intractable problems we share — the drug war, the increasing desperation of migrants and refugees, and environmental degradation. 

Bridges Academy is a continuing education program for those 55 and older. Join us for exciting lectures given by USD’s leading faculty. All lectures are held mid-week on the picturesque USD campus. While the lecture series is free to all participants, the Office of Planned Giving encourages the growth of the Bridges Endowed Scholarship fund, which awards merit-based scholarships to undergraduate students. We look forward to seeing you on campus!
