ECU Hosts Ninth Year of International Affairs Forum
The Great Decisions Program, now in its ninth year at ECU and co-sponsored by the World Affairs Council of Eastern North Carolina (WAC-ENC), will run for eight consecutive Saturdays beginning January 19, 2013 through March 9. Sessions will be held from 10 a.m. to noon in the Rivers West Building auditorium on the ECU campus.
The program consists of a series of lectures by academic and professional experts. Topics of discussion will include Threat Assessment, China in Africa, Myanmar and Southeast Asia, the Future of the Euro, Egypt, NATO, Iran, and Intervention.
Full-time ECU students, staff and faculty may attend for free and purchase the program book for $19. For the general public, the fee is $37 for all eight sessions and includes membership in the WAC-ENC. The textbook is $19. Individual sessions are $6. To register for the series, visit the Great Decisions web site at www.ecu.edu/cs-cas/greatdecisions/home.cfm.
For additional information, contact Dr. Sylvie Debevec Henning at 252-328-5520 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Individuals requesting accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) should call 252-737-1016 (voice/TTY) at least 48 hours prior to each event.
For the fourth year in a row, ECU’s German program has had a student selected for an Undergraduate Scholarship from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
This year’s recipient, MICHAEL VEALE, is a junior from Charlotte double majoring in Theatre Arts and German. Thanks to the award, Michael is spending this academic year as a student at the Freie Universität in Berlin, Germany, where he is taking advantage of the educational and cultural opportunities available to him as a resident of a major European city.
To put this achievement in context, ECU’s program in German is 1 of only 5 in the United States to have had an undergraduate receive a DAAD Undergraduate Scholarship in each of the last four years, and the only program in the entire Southeast to do so. These four scholarships represent approximately $45,000 in external funding for ECU undergraduates to pursue their studies in German and other fields of interest at an institution of higher learning in Germany.
In Michael’s case, the German faculty would like to thank the faculty and staff of the School of Theatre and Dance, in particular Prof. John Shearin, Prof. Hector Garza, and Prof. Gregory Funaro. Their support of Michael’s candidacy was unwavering and much appreciated.
The attached flyer from International Affairs highlights ECU study abroad programs, international student organizations, foods of the world events at the West End Dining Center (and High Tea at the International House), Peace Corps opportunities, foreign film series, Fulbright application tips, and much more.
