Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

Sept. 15: IUPUI Symposium on Mexican Immigration

A must-attend event as IUPUI determines its plan of action with Mexico

When: Friday, September 15, 2006 1-4 pm

Where: IUPUI University College 115

IUPUI has a recently-formed a campus-wide, Mexico interest group that is sponsoring two programs this fall (with support from the Office of International Affairs and Campus and Community Life). This educational event will be comprised of two panels. The first panel will examine Mexico’s culture of emigration and the legal issues faced by immigrants in the U.S. The second panel will focus on contemporary issues faced by Mexican immigrants in Central Indiana. Panelists include Thomas Ruge from Lewis and Kappes, P.C. and IUPUI professors Robert Aponte (Sociology), Maria Pabón López (Law), and Michael Snodgrass (History), as well as local community members. The panel will be moderated by Dr. Steve Jones of the IUPUI Center for Service and Learning.

IUPUI has a recently-formed a campus-wide, Mexico interest group that is sponsoring this symposium, with support from the IUPUI Office of International Affairs and Campus & Community Life with a gift from the Efroymson Fund (a Central Indiana Community Foundation fund).

This symposium is focused on the IUPUI community to help them understand the opportunity of this strategic partnership ... the entire community is invited. A follow-up symposium at IUPUI on Oct. 13 will bring in a wider range of community leaders and activists to discuss making this partnership a reality.

More to be posted on IndyBuzz as it develops ... it could be very important.
