Upcoming Program Events
Kudos!

The College Monthly Faculty/Staff Newsletter, Dec. 2017: In Jewish studies, a major symposium came together thanks to the efforts of program assistant Carla Aspenberg. She organized the “Jews in the Midwest” conference featuring four speakers from outside campus, as well as KU. She has also assisted the transition of a new director of undergraduate studies and managed other duties amid staff changes. And following the conference in November, she quickly switched gears to organizing a new, unexpected faculty hire in the department. Director John Younger said that without Carla, “Jewish studies would be dead in the water.”
