Many borders come with the physical representations of walls, policies and guards. Other borders are less visible and center around ideas and stereotypes. For some Muslim women, social borders may come from wearing a headscarf.

The UPR Original Series "Crossing Borders" is a yearlong storytelling project between UPR and the USU Office of Global Engagement - providing services for international students and scholars; and facilitating study abroad opportunities for students and faculty. Details found here.
