Multicultural Affairs has programmed an International Education Series for the month of April, as an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international faculty, students, education, and exchange. Presently, ENMU has faculty and students from all over the world and continents. 

This initiative is part of the International Affairs Department's efforts to promote programs that prepare national and international individuals for a global environment, from the rural ENMU community.  We would like you to remember, learn celebrate, and be motivated by attending the following virtual events. Presenters will take questions during their live events.

Event: Hidden Lives: Underground Faith in the Iron Curtain Nations

Date: April 6th

Time: 2pm MT

Zoom Link: PLEASE, PRE-REGISTER BY CLICKING https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_OxVZjcgoR_q1BWeTq9JIow

Description:  Fr. Zugger, will present on his experience interviewing survivors of underground communities where crossing the barbed wire that stretched from the Baltic Sea to the Adriatic meant stepping into a world where faith was not only restricted, but actively repressed, and at times totally forbidden. From his interviews with survivors of underground communities and research in eastern Europe, he uncovers how and why people took risks despite constant threats regarding one's employment, children's futures, and the possibility of execution. Fr. Zugger looks at secret regulations that constantly interfered with organized worship, why communism sees religious belief as a danger, and how Christian views of human dignity not only impacted life there, but should do so now today. Co-sponsor with Thomas Moore Newman Center (TMNC)
