ACT Ιnaugurates Νew Εvent Series
The inaugural “Inspiration Exchange!” event took place at ACT on December 7, 2011. The event consisted of a presentation by Genevieve Laurier, President at Oxford Hub, a student generated and managed NGO that coordinates volunteering projects, training, community outreach, and research in Oxford and other cities in the UK. A lively discussion among degree candidates and study abroad students followed, with ideas for action shared and encouraged and contacts made for future cooperation.
The “Inspiration Exchange!” series is devoted to exploring how students can make a difference in their communities and can manage and run their own social projects to bring about change. The events are coordinated by Ruth Sutton and Laura Strieth under the auspices of the Michael and Kitty Dukakis Center for Public and Humanitarian Service.
The series is one of the cornerstones of ACT’s experiential learning program.
