Celebrating The International Diversity Of The Upstate
Clemson University is a co-sponsor of Upstate International Month, which celebrates the international diversity of the Upstate. One of the many cultural activities of the month is a Community Book Read, and this year the book was Elephant Company by Vicki Croke. A panel discussion was recently held at Clemson University to provide readers of this fascinating and inspiring book with multiple perspectives. Participating in the discussion were Clemson professors Dr. Stephanie Barczewski, professor of history, and Dr. Daniel Wueste, professor of philosophy and director of the Rutland Institute for Ethics. The panel was led by Dr. Gregory Bruce, Director of Interdisciplinary Studies at North Greenville University. Joining the professors were David Esch, Chair, International Task Force for Greenville Forward’s Vision 2025 and Amy Park, Director of Research and Operations, Findnewmarkets – USCUSC-Upstate.
