Juan Carlos Lopez, Program Coordinator in Nicaragua, will be in Minneapolis on January 21-22. We have several special events on offer to celebrate Augsburg College’s Nicaragua campus and presence.
10am-12pm: Nicaragua Days Tabling in Christensen Center Lobby
Students who have returned from study abroad in Nicaragua and Central America will be available to discuss their experiences. Stop by and chat, view pictures, and learn how to apply to a semester program (if you’re a student) and explore the possibility of designing your own short-term program (if you’re a faculty member).
3:30pm-4:30pm: Meet and Greet with Juan Carlos in the Augsburg Abroad Suite in the lower level of the Christensen Center
Come meet or reunite with Juan Carlos. Learn more about Central America or reminisce about your time there. This is a casual gathering open to all; light refreshments will be served.
5:30-8pm: Master of Arts in Leadership Anniversary Reception
Open to all Augsburg College campus and community members! Join alumni and current students of the Master of Arts in Leadership and Physician Assistant Programs at Augsburg to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the MA in Leadership course “Universal Responsibility and Leadership: A Nicaraguan Experience.” Enjoy Nicaraguan food, photos, stories, and music, and hear from special guest Juan Carlos Lopez, program coordinator for the Center for Global Education and Experience in Nicaragua. Diana Pierce, KARE 11 news anchor and 2014 Nicaragua program participant, will MC the event. Proceeds benefit NicaHOPE, a nonprofit based in Managua that works with communities living around the Managua city dump to offer long-term solutions to entrenched poverty through education and practical skills training.
