Details

San Diego faces three serious problems: human trafficking, gang violence, and violent extremism. But the picture is not as gloomy if you know where to look for bright spots where collaboration, negotiation, and principled problem solving operate. Bright Spots explores our community resilience: how San Diego communities are responding to and transforming the risks and adversities facing our youth by leveraging our own strengths, networks, and resources. Join Dr. Ami Carpenter, from the Joan B. Kroc School of Peace Studies, to discuss and learn more.

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!
