The Center for International Service at the College of Staten Island has announced the line-up for this fall’s World On Wednesday Lecture Series.

“Our speakers at the World on Wednesday events talk about their own personal experience and present their topics in an informal style, including audio-visuals as appropriate,” says Winnie Brophy, Special Programs Assistant at the Center. “Discussions in the series serve to introduce and encourage students to participate in the wide range of study abroad programs available to them through the Center for International Service.”
