August 31, 2021 - September 19, 2021

Exhibit: September 11, 2001: The Day that Changed the World
On display from August 31-September 19, 2021

The Dole Institute will display a special poster exhibition in Simons Media Room from August 31 through September 19, on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks. Entitled “September 11, 2001: The Day that Changed the World,” the exhibit reviews the events of the day, highlights personal experiences, and invites reflection. It was developed by the 9/11 Memorial Museum with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

In Hansen Hall, visitors can also view two original beams from World Trade Center Tower One, a permanent memorial at the Institute. The two columns were salvaged and presented to the Dole Institute by Mayor Michael Bloomberg, in appreciation of Senator Bob Dole’s work with Former President Bill Clinton on the Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund for the children of 9/11 victims.
