Nominations Now Accepted for 2016 Atlas Program "Coffee and Conversation" Events!

The Atlas Program in collaboration with Political Round Table is pleased to announce its call for nominations for its fourth annual series of "Atlas Coffee and Conversation" events. The Coffee and Conversation series offers the opportunity to sit down and discuss the global experiences of someone who inspires you! For the past three years, one Coffee and Conversation Event has been held with the Atlas Keynote Speaker. The others were held with SLU faculty, staff, and/or students nominated by the student body. These individuals have responded to the call for "men and women for others" in the global arena.

During the 2016 Atlas Program, we would like to again host "Coffee and Conversation" events with members of the SLU community. Who would you like to sit down with and learn more about their global initiatives? Is there a professor you would like to sit down with and learn more about his or her international research and/or service activities? Is there a fellow student you would like to have share their global experiences and how they are working to make a difference in the world? Who emulates SLU's conception of "global citizenship"?

All members of the SLU community are eligible to be nominated. To nominate a member of the SLU community to participate in a "Coffee and Conversation" event, please click here.

Nominations will be accepted through February 3, 2016. Nominees selected will be asked to speak during the Fifteenth Annual Atlas Program to be held April 3 - 9, 2016. As the "Coffee and Conversation" events are designed to provide an informal, small group setting, spaces will be limited at these events and an R.S.V.P. will be required. Information on how to attend these events will be provided in February of 2016.

If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Michelle Lorenzini, Assistant Professor of Political Science and Director of the Atlas Program, at lorenzms@slu.edu.
