Fall 2021 Event Details

Eastern University is delighted to announce the transformation of its distinctive lecture series, Windows on the World. Since Spring 2020, Eastern now features dynamic speakers on a monthly basis rather than a weekly basis. We have two exciting names lined up for the fall semester! Presentations are on Fridays (dates below) at 10 a.m., in McInnis Auditorium. They are sponsored by the Office of the Provost and open to the public.

November 19, 2021: Peter Greer: President and CEO of HOPE International

Peter GreerWindows on the World (November 19th at 10 a.m.): “Rooting for Rivals”. Faith-based organizations are sometimes known for what we’re against --  and all too often that includes being against each other. Peter Greer will explore case studies illustrating the power of collaborative partnership and share failures and successes in pursuing the power of openhanded leadership. Peter Greer has worked internationally as a microfinance adviser in Cambodia and Zimbabwe and as managing director for Urwego Bank in Rwanda. Currently, he is the president and CEO of HOPE International, a global Christ-centered development organization serving throughout Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Eastern  Europe. More important than his role at HOPE is his role as husband to Laurel and dad to Keith, Liliana, Myles, and London!
