Grandson of Mohandas Gandhi to Speak

AU_OIP_ArunGhandi_Collateral_FINALThe Auburn University Office of International Programs will host Arun Gandhi, grandson of the legendary Mohandas Gandhi, for a lecture titled “Lessons Learned From My Grandfather: Non-Violence in a Violent World.” Part of OIP’s Year of India, this free event will take place Feb. 9 at 7 p.m. in the Foy Hall Auditorium. The Auburn University Indian Music Ensemble will provide a special performance as part of the event, and a reception will follow in the lobby.

“When we invited Dr. Gandhi to speak on campus as part of the Year of India, we knew his topic would resonate with our community,” said Andrew Gillespie, assistant provost for international programs. “But as worldwide events unfolded we realized just how important his message of hope and peace in the face of turmoil and conflict truly is.”

Gap Year with Project Horseshoe Farm

January 26 | 3:30-4 pm | Haley Center 2196

Launched in the summer of 2009, the Horseshoe Farm Fellowship is a pioneering attempt to rethink and provide a new model for how to prepare our most promising future community based service leaders in healthcare and education to lead effective grassroots community based efforts in their own communities once they have completed their education and training.

HSF RecruitmentStudents preparing for careers in healthcare or education, as well as other students with strong leadership potential, are invited to commit one year (13 months) to the Greensboro community and to the Horseshoe Farm Fellowship. Fellows are challenged to learn about and become engaged in the community as they are immersed in almost all phases and aspects of the development, management, and leadership of, and service in the programs of Project Horseshoe Farm.
