Join us for a lunch and lecture every block.

Upcoming Lecture:

Block 4: Dr. Marina Cunin Borer, Colorado State University-Pueblo. The Diverse Experiences of Military Spouses: From Their Own Words.

Thursday, December 8, 2016, 12:15pm-1:45pm,

Barnes Science Center #407

Dr. Marina Cunin will present an overview of her research to date on military spouses and their various experiences. Based on individual and group interviews, as well as using traditional fieldwork methods, the research highlights the diversity of groups within that particular population and explores definitions of ‘military spouse’ through the words of spouses themselves. It is suggested that these two areas are particularly significant when considering policies and services aimed at providing assistance for the array of issues affecting the military spouse community.

(Lunch will be served at noon)
