Day 44: Centennial Lecture Series: Expert on U.S./Latin America Relations

By on November 18, 2013

Today is Day 44 in the Countdown to UTEP’s Centennial Year.

As UTEP prepares to celebrate its 100th year, it is offering a Centennial Lecture series which invites noteworthy speakers to the UTEP campus to share a broad range of contemporary issues.

These topics are meant to expand our thinking about how they will shape UTEP’s next hundred years.

The next Centennial Speaker will be Shannon K. O’Neil, Senior fellow for Latin America Studies with the Council on Foreign Relations.  O’Neil’s expertise includes U.S./Latin America relations, trade, energy, and immigration.

O’Neil is the author of “Two Nations Indivisible: Mexico, the United States, and the Road Ahead,” which analyzes the political, economic, and social transformations Mexico has undergone over the last 3 decades, and why those changes matter for the U.S.

O’Neil’s talk will take place tomorrow at 5 p.m., in Room 106 of the UTEP Undergraduate Learning Center.


Jessica Molinar Muñoz is the director of communications for UTEP's Centennial Office.
