Visit from the Iraqi Ambassador
A little over a week ago, EIU was privileged to hear a speech from Samir Shakir Mahmood Sumaid'ie, the Iraqi ambassador to the United States. Dvorak Concert Hall was filled with students, faculty, staff and community members who not only enjoyed the speech, but participated in a lengthy Q&A session.
Earlier in the day, panel discussions on the Middle East, featuring subject area experts, were well-attended and informative for all. Another great opportunity for our students and community to come into contact with internationally known figures!
