One World at Tennessee Tech University will host a multicultural evening from 6 to 8 p.m. Feb. 26 in the first-floor Tech Pride Room of Roaden University Center.
Volunteers from the Peace Corps, including Diane Glasgow, of Cookeville, will speak about interaction with other cultures in “Cross Cultural Training: Opening Minds.”
The panel will share images of the cultures they worked within and discuss the impact that work had on themselves and others.
The Peace Corps is a service organization that sends volunteers all over the world to help with pressing needs. The group’s mission is to promote world peace and friendship.
One World is a diversity club at TTU that educates people about different cultures from around the world in an effort to create unity.
Students will learn how to become Peace Corps volunteers during the event, which will include a free meal of international food.
This event is sponsored by TTU’s Center Stage, which is made possible by the university’s general education fund. The event is free and open to the public.
Roaden University Center is located at 1000 N. Dixie Ave.
