Returned Peace Corps Volunteer Panel

Start: February 22, 2012 7:00 pm
Cost: $0

This is your opportunity to hear from eight former Peace Corps Volunteers about their experiences abroad. Our panelists are professionals who have served all over the world, some as recently as a few years ago, some when Peace Corps was brand new in the 1960s. Former Volunteers will answer your questions and offer their insights on the Peace Corps experience, from application to readjustment after service. You’ll hear from a Volunteer who answered John F. Kennedy’s call to serve in India in 1966, a retired couple who recently completed their service in Azerbaijan, a nonprofit professional who earned her Master’s degree (tuition-free!) through the Peace Corps Fellows program, a Volunteer who taught English and coached basketball at a Turkish university, and more! Meet us in the Jayhawk Room at 7.

Restorative Justice with Laura McClenny

Start: November 9, 2011 12:00 pm

Throughout our history, Native Americans have been an integral part of the American character. Against the odds, America’s first peoples have endured, and they remain a vital cultural, political, social, and moral presence.

This year, the OMA and FNSA, along with several other collaborative organizations, are proud to celebrate Native American Heritage Month. Please see the attached flyer for all the details on all the wonderful programs we are sponsoring. Print posters are available for pick up in the Sabatini Multicultural Resource Center.
