Activities during CASA Week will include a series of lectures and presentations on the topics concerning Central Asia-South Asia, cultural activities by UNO students, Now Roz (New Year celebration), and exhibitions. This event will also serve as “Reverse Study Abroad” event for UNO students and community members because it has been difficult to visit a number of countries in Central or South Asia.
The CASA Celebration Week will take place in the month of March every year since March corresponds with New Year Celebrations in Central Asia-South Asian countries. Members of the UNO community, as well as Creighton, UNL, and other schools around the metro area, are invited to participate. Activities during this week will also be open to public.
The Honorable H.E. Farhod Salim, the Ambassador of the Republic of Tajikistan, will be a guest of honor at UNO for the 2018 CASA Week Celebrations. Ambassador Salim will provide an opening keynote for CASA Week on Monday, March 26, at noon in the Milo Bail Student Center.
