Bryan College’s Center for International Development will feature international speakers during a global lecture series running until the end of February.
Social and Environmental Activist Tomas Peciar, lectured last week on An Example of Using Social Activism in Europe to Promote Better Community Life. At the end of February, humanitarian aid volunteer Mar Lopez will lecture in multiple classes on The Continuing Greek Refugee Crisis; Communication Challenges Related to Language, Culture and Religion. Both speakers will present to a variety of classes, including communication, political science, and exercise health science.
This week will feature Dr. Vaclav Rericha of Palacky University and a member of the Pedagogicka Faculty. Hailing from Olomouc in the Czech Republic, Dr. Rericha is the founder of the Olomouc Training Center, the largest business training center in post-Communist Central Europe. This lecture, titled The Harsh Political, Economic and Social Realities of Communism in Czechoslovakia, will be delivered to communications, philosophy, political science, and history classes.
