Director, Center for Cultural and Ethnic Studies, National University 1998-2007.
I served as Director for the Center for Cultural and Ethnic Studies at National University from 1998 to 2007, and as an event coordinator until 2015. In these roles, I helped to bring diverse humanities programming to the University and local communities. By combining grant funding with faculty participation, alumni outreach, community sponsorship and joint programming with other universities, the Center produced humanities-based outreach events on cultural and social issues. Below is only a small sample of the programing we were able to provide.
