The cost to attend is $10, and registration is required. Vanderbilt students may attend for free. To register, go to http://www.vanderbilt.edu/ctp/events/connecting-new-nashvillians/ .
The directory consolidates information on organizations and initiatives that offer English as a second language, job skills and computer literacy classes for members of the immigrant and refugee communities. It will go live May 6 at http://connectingnewnashvillians.org .
Vanderbilt’s Cal Turner Program for Moral Leadership in the Professions develops the leadership and ethical capacities of those serving in the professions. Cal Turner Jr. endowed the program in 1994 in the name of his father, Cal Turner, co-founder of Dollar General Corporation.
