The Arab Crossroads Program organizes talks, conferences, and a brown bag lunch series every year, as well as offering students the opportunity to go on regional trips in association with the ACS classes they take.

Lunchtime Lecture Series

In addition to public lectures, the ACS program hosts a luncheon lunch lecture series, where regional scholars can talk about their work in an informal setting.
