In-Person Events Return

Coming in at #3 is the return of in-person events to Millersville. Campus was once again bustling with students, faculty, staff, alumni and visitors from the surrounding community.

We were pleased to host a number of hallmark events on campus for the first time in several years.

Holocaust Conference – Art Spiegelman is an influential cartoonist and comics advocate best known for his graphic novel “Maus,” a story developed based on Spiegelman’s relationship with his father, a Holocaust survivor. Depicting the Holocaust with cats as Nazis and mice as Jews, Maus won a Pulitzer Prize in 1992. In April Spiegelman visited Millersville University during the  Conference on the Holocaust and Genocide.  Read more here.
