Grand openings are about beginnings, inspired ideas, and a fresh place for those ideas to take root and grow. That’s what the new interdisciplinary learning space in the Caroline Richardson Hall on the uptown campus celebrated Wednesday, August 30. The Public Health Undergraduate program and Newcomb College Institute’s Gender Studies program have joined forces to create a new space for collaborations and idea-sharing for the two flourishing programs.

Leadership from both programs recognized their natural synergy at the reception, and dedicated the space as a resource to support continued student growth and excellence. The reception also welcomed Liz Langlois (pictured below on the left) as the new Public Health Undergraduate program director.
