Event Description

Alumni guests Randal Gibson ‘96 and Alana McGinty ’10 join us for a Panel Discussion of Peace Corps, Then and Now. Having each served in the Peace Corps in two very different times and places, the discussion will reflect these various experiences. Gibson served in Teheran, Iran as a Handcrafts Designer/Teacher from 1973-1974. McGinty was a Peace Corps volunteer in South Africa from 2011-2013.

Gibson graduated from ISU in 1996 with a master’s in political science and an emphasis in Community/Economic Development. He retired in 2017 from his position as a Branch Chief in Planning and Performance Management with the USDA Farm Service Agency in Washington, D.C.

McGinty graduated with a double degree in Sociology and Political Science in 2010. She then earned an MA in International Development from American University. McGinty is currently a Grants and Contracts Associate at DAI Global. She believes in the power of the global community to affect development outcomes and is focused on advancing gender equality and using digital tools for development.

Discover how service can launch your career at this unique panel discussion with Q & A hosted by the Stevenson Center and the Department of Sociology and Anthropology.  Light refreshments will be served.
