The announcement of the Board of the Polish Alumni Association

Once again in history, the Russian government, guided solely by the law of the stronger, is aiming to change the borders of neighboring countries by force. In the face of the war in Ukraine, the Board of the Polish Alumni Association unequivocally takes the side of the attacked Ukrainians. We, the Alumni of programs sponsored by the American government, represent a community that pursues the goal of bringing closer together the peoples of Poland and of the United States, of deepening interpersonal relations, and of promoting the virtues of democratic societies. We are opposed to any form of violence and conflict between nations.

In this hour of trial, we stand shoulder to shoulder with the Ukrainians, united under the proud banner of Freedom!

 

 

Повідомлення правління Польської Aсоціації Алюмні

Вкотре в історії влада Росії намагається примусово змінити кордони сусідніх держав, керуючись виключно правом сильнішого. В умовах війни в Україні Правління Асоціації Алюмні однозначно стає на бік атакованих Українців. Ми, стипендіати та стипендіатки американських урядових програм, творимо спільноту, яка має на меті зблизити народи Польщі та Сполучених Штатів, поглибити міжособистісні стосунки та пропагувати чесноти демократичних суспільств. Ми проти будь-якої форми насильства та конфлікту між націями.

У цю годину випробування ми стоїмо пліч-о-пліч з Українцями, об’єднані під гордим прапором Свободи!

“Profession”, a series of interviews with Alumni

We are launching a new project under the common title: “Profession”.

“Profession” will be a series of interviews with members of the Alumni Association, whose professional life is related to a profession that cannot be pigeonholed in an 8-hour day of office work, requires a lot of commitment and initiative, and is associated with far-reaching self-discipline. We will try to familiarize our audience with the backstage of these professions, tell about their positive and negative aspects, show the variability of the profession over the years, related to, for example, the development of modern technologies.

The interviews will be conducted by Zbigniew Bartuś, journalist, reporter, columnist for Dziennik Polski and the media of Polska Press Group. Zbigniew is a member of the Alumni Association. He went to the USA as part of the IVLP (2000) program.
