• Faculty Lecturer, Cuba

  • I served as faculty lecturer on an alumni tour of Cuba in 2015. We visited art markets, youth programs, and architural renovation in Havana, the Guevara Mausoleum in Santa Clara, an organic farm in Pinar del Río, and the ocean waves in Varadero. Here I stand in front of the University of Havana. Founded in 1728, it is the oldest university in Cuba and one of the earliest to be established in the Americas.

The group has also coordinated conferences on topics such as the drug war and NAFTA, facilitated community volunteer work, held career networking sessions, run video conferences with international organizations, and facilitated language learning through weekly Spanish and Portuguese "charlas".
