International Night is back and ready to foster community

International Night was the first on-campus event to be canceled in March of 2019 after COVID-19 forced UP to send students home. Now, the 50 year long tradition is back and fostering dialogues surrounding international experiences with a panel of students. The panel will be held on Nov. 18 from 5:30-8:00 pm at the Quiet Side of Commons.

“Looking horizontally” with UP alum Walter Thompson-Hernández

Walter Thompson-Hernández grew up watching planes fly over his neighborhood, daydreaming of all the worlds that extended beyond the ones that he and his community knew. Now those daydreams have turned into reality after his film “If I Go Will They Miss Me”, highlighting narratives he grew up around, won the 2022 Sundance U.S Jury Prize Award.  His short film will be screened on Sept. 8 in the Brian Doyle Auditorium in the Dundon-Berchthold Hall from 6-7:30 p.m. There he will host a Q&A afterwards to kick off Latinx Heritage month as the keynote speaker, sponsored by Portland Magazine and the Office of International Education, Diversity and Inclusion.
