The Wheeling Jesuit University Global Student Services invite the community to take part in a discussion surrounding the 1994 Rwanda genocide.

The free presentation will take place at 7 p.m. on Feb. 20 inside The Ratt of Swint Hall.

 Three undergraduate students from Rwanda will look at what caused the genocide and the conflict itself, as well as the reaction of the international community.

"This is the third installment of our talks this semester on our global viewpoint series," said Taras Strutynsky," WJU global student services specialist. "They are going to talk about lessons the world learned during the genocide, and of course the aftermath."

Videos will be presented during the student's discussions. For more information contact the Global Student Services Office at 304-243-4476.
