Please join the Kevorkian Center for another Alumni Professional Development Event. We will be joined by two alumni, Adem Carroll, an activist and organizer with Burma Muslims in New York City and Cyrus Roedel, a podcaster and community organizer now based in Tunisia. Our guests will speak about their time at the Kevorkian Center, how it set up their career beyond the M.A. degree, and answer questions from students and alumni.
This event is open to NYU students and alumni only.
