Dear Alumni and Friends,

I-House has been brimming with excitement as the Robertson Center for Intercultural Leadership & Programs celebrates the return of the in-person Lodestar Speaker Series! If you're in the area this Thursday, February 16th, join us for a discussion on Anti-Blackness and Colorism. Registration is free, details below.

I am happy to announce the application for Summer Housing is now open! Please help us to spread the word.

On this Valentine's Day, I invite you to read, reminisce, and perhaps share your own I-House love or friendship story!

Finally, please mark your calendars for Big Give on March 8th and 9th!
