Lunch & Learn | October 6, 2022
On Sept. 17, Hurricane Fiona hit the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico, almost five years to the day after Hurricane Maria. Puerto Ricans are again dealing with extreme destruction - blackouts, short water supplies and property damage. It’s a significant setback for efforts to restore the island’s infrastructure, engineer social reconstruction, and deal with massive debt.
As we recognize Hispanic Heritage Month, Chief Diversity Officer Eloisa Gordon-Mora shares insights on why U.S. policy to aid Puerto Rico hasn’t worked, and what her native country needs to bounce back. This small group lunch is open to all campus community members.
