The World Values Survey is a place to learn more about values and cultural changes in societies all over the world. An interactive graph on the Globe & Mail website allows you to see the tallied 2005-2008 results by country, of the percentage of people who would not like to live next to people of a different religion, an unmarried couple, homosexuals, people of a different race, etc. Highlighted in red is Canada, and highlighted in blue is the United States.
It’s interesting to see the varied answers of the respondents given in this survey, and see whereabouts you stand in comparison to countries around the globe.

Herron School of Art and Design MFA student artist Rogelio Gutierrez has set up an installation exhibition at the Campus Center Tunnel, titled Invisible Frontier. The exhibition consists of 40 “road signs” which is designed to simulate an invisible frontier shared by the United States of America and Mexico. In light of anti-immigrant legislation beingproposed across the country by many states, the installation invites members of the larger Indianapolis community to the IUPUI campus to see the visual and textual representations of issues faced by immigrant populations. The art exhibit uses one end of the tunnel, Cavanaugh Hall, as its stand-in for Mexico, and the Campus Center as the United States.
This exhibit will be up for viewing by the public beginning today, Monday, November 29th through Thursday, December 2nd. The tunnel is accessible from the hours of 7:00AM until 9:00PM.
In addition to the exhibit, the Campus Center will be holding an Immigration Symposium on Thursday, December 2nd starting at 11:00AM until 2:00PM.
