The Cuban Heritage Collection Graduate Fellows Colloquium will be held on Thursday, August 26 at 2:30 p.m. in the Elena Díaz Versón Amos Conference Room of the Roberto C. Goizueta Pavilion in the Richter Library, second floor.

The fellowships provide assistance to graduate students who wish to use the research resources available in the Cuban Heritage Collection at the University of Miami. The goal of these fellowships is to engage emerging scholars with the materials available in the collection and thus contribute to the larger body of scholarship in Cuban, hemispheric, and international studies. The 2010 CHC Graduate Fellowships are generously funded by The Goizueta Foundation.

Higher education will never be the same when rowdy and rich senior Thornton Melon (Rodney Dangerfield) goes back to school to help his college misfit son. Melon lends some fatherly support by enrolling as a fellow freshman, but when he ticks off his professor he must hit the books or go back to being the world’s wealthiest dropout. The film screens on Friday, August 27 at 8 p.m.; Saturday, August 28 at 6 p.m.; and Sunday, August 29 at 5 p.m. Admission is $6 for seniors, University of Miami alumni, faculty, non UM-students, and staff. General admission is $8. Cash only. Free for UM students. For more information, visit www.cosfordcinema.com or call 305-284-4861.
