account in ordering food. There are always vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free

program, and housing in MSU's dormitories is available for $50/night (minimum
3 night stay). Find out more at msuglobaldh.org/accommodation.
  *   While parking is not free by default, we will have a number of parking
vouchers available.

presentations for speakers unable to travel to Michigan State University.

The conference keynote presentations will come from Carrie Heitman, whose work
