Invitation Letter

Lilly Fellows/Network Exchange Program

 

Lilly Fellows Program Representative:

Happy New Year!  We are excited to inform you of the upcoming Lilly Network Exchange “Returning to the Roots of Civil Rights” to be held at Geneva College June 3-15, 2008.  This exchange program will consist of a four-day seminar (June 3-6), followed by an eight-day bus tour (June 7-15).  Participants in the Network Exchange Program will spend time in deep study of the Civil Rights Movement as presented through the “Returning to the Roots of Civil Rights” program so that they may implement a similar program at their respective institutions.  At the conclusion of the on-campus seminar, participants will then depart on a tour of key sites of the Movement, having the chance to interact with a diverse group of Movement veterans.

In keeping with the standard format of the Network Exchange Program, Geneva College will select a group of twelve scholars and professionals from network institutions for this exciting opportunity.  What follows are a few pertinent details of this innovative experience:

  • Preference will be given to those persons who can participate in both the seminar and the tour.
  • Persons interested in attending the tour only can contact Todd Allen for additional information. 
  • The registration fee for both the seminar and the tour is a $150 non-refundable deposit.  No space will be reserved without a deposit paid in full.  Checks are to be made payable to: The Common Ground Project
  • Seminar/tour participants will have the following expenses paid: Travel to/from Geneva College (up to $400 reimbursable), all of the meals associated with the seminar aspect of this event, and lodging.  Lodging on the tour will be based on double occupancy.  If requesting a single room on the tour, there will be an additional expense.  Lodging for the seminar is single occupancy.
  • Registration deadline is: March 14, 2008.

 

See you in June!
