Laker Club Talks

Kara VanDam, Vice Provost for Graduate and Lifetime Learning
Rediscovering Home

Thursday, October 12, 4–5 p.m.
University Club, DeVos Center 

After growing up in Grand Rapids, VanDam called a lot of places home over the next 30 years: Chapel Hill, Barcelona, Chicago and D.C. Then a stroke of fate set her course for a return to West Michigan. What’s it like to come home when so much has changed?

Together, we will explore a variety of topics, perspectives, and ideas that empower us to form meaningful relationships and find common ground through impactful conversations in a relaxed and informal setting. Click here for a list of additional talks.
