We'll also include a tour of our wonderful Peace Corps 50th exhibit, which features RPCV photos and artifacts from around the globe, so come for a personal tour! We'll have a couple tables for additional Peace Corps photos and artifacts, so please bring along something to share...Our event is in the UMBC Library Gallery (1st Floor) and Visitor parking is in the Stadium Lot (near Hilltop and Poplar). It's not the closest lot, but just walk straight in towards the campus center and find us in the Library.~JobyWhat is going to change the world today is the same thing that has changed it in the past: an idea, and the service of dedicated individuals committed to that idea. ~Sargent ShriverPractical Idealists:Bringing the Worldto BaltimoreAn interactive panel discussion and networking event featuring Baltimore social change leaderswho are Returned Peace Corps Volunteers.November 16, 2010UMBC Library Gallery6:30 - Reception and Networking7:00 p.m. - Panel Discussion and RecognitionsRefreshments ProvidedPanelists Include:Richard Kimball, Assistant Professor - JHU Schools of Medicine and NursingJody Olson,Visiting Professor - University of Maryland School of Social Work and Former Deputy Director of the Peace CorpsEd Orser, Professor of American Studies, UMBCSally Scott, Senior Program Officer - Association of Baltimore Area Grantmakers (ABAG)Ashley Milburn, Director of The Culture Works ProjectWe will also present our 3rd annual Practical Idealist Recognition to Shriver Peaceworker Alum, Rich Kimballand highlight our partnership with the Office of Baltimore City Councilman James Kraft.For more information call Jennifer Robinson at 410-455-6313For directions please visit UMBC Map and Directions Visitor Parking will be available in the Stadium Lot off Hilltop Circle.Are you an RPCV?
