Much has been written and said in the last few months about the changes in the United States since the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. But the U.S. isn’t the only country that’s seen changes.

Dr. Tom Gouttierre will visit the main LCCC campus to speak about “Opportunities and Challenges in Afghanistan Ten Years after 9/11.” His talk will be at 6 p.m. Sept. 30 in Arp 128.

Dr. Goutierre is Dean of International Studies and Programs and Director of the Center for Afghanistan at the University of Nebraska-Omaha.

Dr. Goutierre has extensive experience in Afghanistan including former service as a Peace Corps volunteer and a Fulbright Fellow. He has served as a member of the International Rescue Committee’s Citizens Commission on Afghanistan Refugees. He also has testified on topics related to Afghanistan, U.S.-Pakistani relations, international terrorism and human rights before various committees of Congress.

Dr. Goutierre’s talk, which has been scheduled to observe the tenth anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks, is being sponsored by the LCCC International Studies program in partnership with the University of Wyoming International Studies Program.
