The Center for Global Education (CGE) at Augsburg College is set to celebrate 25 years with two upcoming events.
On Saturday, July 21, CGE is sponsoring a day-long conference on the theme “Building a Just and Sustainable World: Education for Transformation.” The keynote speech will be given by Dr. Pandu Hailonga van Dijk from Windoek, Namibia on “Education for Decolonization.” She is the former site director for the CGE program in Namibia and is currently an assistant representative for the United Nation’s Population Fund.
The celebration continues that evening with a Global Gala, including food, wine and appetizers from around the world, a silent auction of unique items and dancing to world music.
The conference will be held at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, 2730 East 31sth St., Minneapolis, from 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. Cost for the conference is $25, which includes a continental breakfast and lunch. The Gala will be held in the Foss Center at Augsburg College, 625 22nd Ave. S., Minneapolis, from 7 - 11 p.m. Cost for the evening is $40.
Since 1982 more than 10,000 people have participated in CGE’s semester and short-term programs in more than 40 countries in the Asia/Pacific region, the Caribbean, Europe, the Middle East, southern Africa, Latin America, and in the United States.
