Passport to the World: Collin College's Cultural Connections

  Passport to the World has gone virtual for the fall!  

Collin College’s Passport program offers community members an opportunity to experience our global society through a series of exciting presentations each semester.  Collin College faculty and staff members who have traveled to a variety of global locations bring back and share their newly acquired knowledge about different cultures, art forms, architecture, music, religions, political systems, and much more.  Each lecture is unique as Collin College presenters share their world experiences through stunning photographs, narrative, music, and dance.  Light samples of related cuisine are served, but attendees are welcome to bring in their own lunches as well.  Come travel with us through Passport to the World presentations!
