The Other Side of Hope, a film by Aki Kaurismäki

UMass Lowell's International Film Series

UMass Lowell’s International Film Series continues with a screening of Finnish director, Aki Kaurismäki's "The Other Side of Hope" on Thursday, March 21 at 6 p.m., O'Leary Library, Room 222.

"The Other Side of Hope", a wry, melancholic comedy, a clear-eyed response to the current refugee crisis, follows two people searching for a place to call home.

As deadpan as the best of the director's work, and with a deep well of empathy for its down-but-not-out characters is a bittersweet tale of human kindness in the face of official indifference.

Professor Thomas Hersey of the College of Fine Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences will lead the conversation.

The film is free to the campus community.

Demographics and the Demand for Higher Education by Nathan Grawe

Demographics and the Demand for Higher Education by Nathan D. Grawe

Higher education faces a looming demographic storm. Decades-long patterns in fertility, migration, and immigration persistently nudge the country toward the Hispanic Southwest.

As a result, the Northeast and Midwest—traditional higher education strongholds—expect to lose 5 percent of their college-aged populations between now and the mid-2020s.

Furthermore, and in response to the Great Recession, child-bearing has plummeted. In 2026, when the front edge of this birth dearth reaches college campuses, the number of college-aged students will drop almost 15 percent in just 5 years.
