This year, for our 2018–19 annual theme, "Migrations: Populations and Practices on the Move," we have been asking our Scholars faculty and staff to share how they are connecting the theme to their respective programs. The first entry in this series, "3 Questions With..." was with Tim Knight, director of the Environment, Technology and Economy Scholars program.
College Park Scholars kicked off the spring semester with a February dialogue event for students to share their own personal stories around our annual theme, “Migrations.” Many of the participants, as first- or second-generation Americans, spoke of their connections to their parents’ or grandparents’ cultures through food. They also referenced the emotional impacts their families’ respective migration stories had on their own lives.
At the start of the 2018–2019 academic year, we ran a story on some of the interesting things Scholars students and alumni did during their summer break. But students aren’t the only ones in Scholars who pursue other adventures when class isn’t in session. We caught up with some of our Scholars faculty and staff to see how they spent the most recent winter and spring breaks.
