From East Campus to the Middle East: Higher Education, Humanitarian Action, and a Major Misunderstanding

  • Starts: 10:00 am on Thursday, April 14, 2016

Matthew Trevithick (CGS'06, CAS'08), recipient of BU's 2014 Young Alumni Award, will talk about how his experience studying international relations at BU led him abroad to do research, study language, and take humanitarian action.

Learn more about Matthew's service through his efforts to bring rowing to war-torn Iraq and Afghanistan, and through the non-profit organization he co-founded-- the organization where he is back safely working after the major misunderstanding that resulted in him spending 41 days detained at Evin Prison in Iran.

Join us for the opportunity to hear this incredible story from a remarkable BU alum.
