Our new AFSOAS President Mr. Greg Buie (MA, International Studies and Diplomacy - 2007) will be on-hand to share his insights about the future of AFSOAS and how you - our fellow alumni & friends - can stay connected to the university, fellow students & alumni, and lifelong learning opportunities. Greg will also be speaking about his experiences running a nonprofit organization in Ethiopia, where his organization Visions Global Empowerment seeks specifically to help promote the development of Deaf civil society.
