Passport to the World: Collin College's Cultural Connections

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!

If you plan to bring an entire class to a presentation or require special accommodations, please contact Dr. Clark (one week in advance please) at

All events are free and open to the public.

Join Professor Denise Brown to learn about the temples built in 12th Century Siem Reap of modern Cambodia. Originally built as a Hindu temple by the Khmer Empire and later used by Buddhist monks, the temples are architectural marvels that have survived industrialization, war, and attempts by the surrounding jungle to reclaim them. Professor Brown will discuss her journey to the Angkor sites and to other temples in Bangkok, Thailand.

This is a free event and open to the community!
