Passport to the World: Collin College's Cultural Connections

Virtual Passport Events Coming Soon!

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.

Ni Hao – Hello and Welcome to China! Join Henry Canfield as he shares some of the experiences and cultural lessons he learned while living and working in China for almost 14 years. The Middle Kingdom has a wealth of history, a fascinating current climate, and a bright future developing daily on the world stage.
