The presentation “Social Change and Politics in Nicaragua and Guatemala” is an excellent opportunity for the Augsburg community to be updated on the current events in locations where Augsburg has a global presence, as well as meet CGEE’s newest instructor! Please join us from 3:30 – 4:30 pm in the East Commons on Thursday, November 15th, and enjoy Central American coffee and thoughtful discussion. There will be time for socializing before and after the presentation.

This event is a part of a week-long “International Education Week”, an national push for more global awareness on US college campuses and universities. Check out social media hashtags at #IEW2018 to see how others’ are celebrating this year!
