Several Westmont College faculty and staff members will explore issues about immigration and migration in a panel discussion, “Redefining Borders: From Political to the Personal,” at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 9, at University Club, 1332 Santa Barbara St.

Tickets are not required; limited seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, call 565-6051.

The panelists are Cheri Larson Hoeckley, professor of English; Christian Hoeckley, director of the Gaede Institute; Liz Robertson, resident director of Emerson Hall; and moderator Cynthia Toms, Westmont kinesiology and global studies professor.

The panelists participated in a five-day Border Immersion Faculty Seminar last May at the Tucson/Nogales crossing site.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
