UNO to Host Group from Ukraine
Omaha - The University of Nebraska at Omaha's (UNO) Center for Economic Education will host a seminar for a group of Ukrainians from the Donetsk region. The meeting is part of the Open World Program sponsored by the U.S. Library of Congress.
The seminar is scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 14, from 3 to 5 p.m. in the Chancellor's Conference Room in the Eppley Administration Building at UNO. Representatives from the colleges of Arts and Sciences, Business Administration and Public Affairs and Community Service will take part along with faculty and staff from the Nebraska Business Development Center (NBDC) and the Center for Economic Education. NBDC and the Center for Economic Education will be a part of a panel presentation for the seminar. The four Ukranian representatives are visiting from the Donetsk State University and the city of Artemivsk.
The Open World Program is a unique, nonpartisan initiative of the U.S. Congress that builds mutual understanding between the emerging leaders of participating countries and their U.S. counterparts. It also exposes delegates to ideas and practices they can adapt for use in their own work. Founded in 1999 with a focus on Russia, the program has also in recent years hosted delegations from Lithuania, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan. Delegates range from mayors to journalists, from nonprofit directors to small-business owners, and from political activists to high-court judges. More than 10,500 Open World participants have been hosted in all 50 U.S. states. The program's administering agency, the Open World Leadership Center, is a legislative branch entity with offices at the Library of Congress.
For additional information about the Open World Program delegation from Ukraine and its visit, contact John Jeanetta, vice president of Research and Planning at the AIM Institute, at 345-5025, x127, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
