  • Feb. 26: The Nature of Color opens at the Natural History Museum of Utah, 301 S. Wakara Way, SLC. "A traveling exhibition from the American Museum of Natural History in New York, The Nature of Color reveals the integral role color plays in nature and across cultures, including how color conveys information in the natural world—how it’s used: to find food, to ward off predators, to conceal and reveal—as well as across cultures, where color is used to communicate, celebrate, and convey meaning."

Professor Amos Guiora, SJ Quinney College of Law at the UoU, shared his perspective on Russia's invasion of Ukraine and what he thinks comes next from the U.S. and NATO allies. Guiora is the author of The Crime of Complicity: the Bystander in the Holocaust, a hard-hitting non-fiction narrative about his family's experiences in Hungary and the Netherlands during the Holocaust.
