The Dallas Institute is suspending all onsite activity through August. In the meantime, we are planning a full slate of programs for the Fall, hoping that we might be able to meet to a limited extent on campus but aware that all programs may have to be online.

Expect to see Fall programs on our website by August 3rd. We will update our website periodically with details and continue to monitor the situation with an eye toward revising the period of suspension as necessary.

The kind of work the Dallas Institute is doing is crucial in today’s chaotic world.  If it didn’t exist, it would have to be invented right now to help us get through.
