Paul A. Smith: Standing In

The Blaffer Art Museum is proud to present the exhibition Standing In by Jamaica-born, New York-based artist Paul Anthony Smith who makes photo-based works that push back against the medium’s inherently predatory dimensions while simultaneously introducing a network of added layers to navigate.

HPAC Personal Statement Workshop

The HPAC Personal Statement Workshop is designed to help our pre-medical and pre-dental students strengthen and develop their personal statement drafts. (Please note students should attend the Personal Statement Orientation first, write a draft, and then attend their selected workshop.) Students will need to be able to share a rough draft of their personal statement that is substantial enough to receive feedback (1/2 page, single spaced minimum) but it does not need to be full completed. RSVP is required; one RSVP per student.

Students who wish to go through HPAC evaluation in Spring 2023 must attend one HPAC Orientation, one HPAC Personal Statement Orientation, and one HPAC Personal Statement Workshop. Please be sure to sign up for one of each event, and sign in when you attend to receive credit.

NATO Ambassador Douglas Lute: The U.S., the War for Ukraine & Russia’s Threat to Europe & Beyond

To understand how the Ukraine War will be fought in the months to come and the political challenges for NATO, perhaps no American leader has a deeper awareness at the highest levels than former U.S. Ambassador to NATO Douglas Lute. During his 35 years of service in the U.S. Army, retired Lt. General Lute served as Deputy Director of Operations for the U.S. European Command and then as Director of Operations on the Joint Staff – overseeing U.S. military operations worldwide.
