Nobel Laureate, Muhammad Yunus to speak at UIUC

by Ann Abbott

If you're at or near the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and interested in social entrepreneurship, don't miss Muhammad Yunus' talk on Monday, March 1 at 7:00 p.m. at Foellinger Auditorium.

Before the talk, you can go to the Business Instructional Facility (515 E. Gregory Drive, Champaign) to view posters by students and faculty involved in social entrepreneurship.

Valeri Werpetinski--UIUC's service learning champion and curriculum leader for students in the Social Entrepreneurship Summer Institute--has worked hard on helping to organize and promote this event. And she has invited me to be her guest at the dinner with Yunus after his talk. I will let you know all about the dinner conversation.


  1. My friend Tricia and I will have a poster at the BIF all about ACCION Chicago! She was also an intern there with me during the summer and she also stayed for the Fall semester. The poster session runs from 4 to 6pm in the atrium.

  2. I am going to do my best to make it to this event! Sounds like a very interesting person to learn more about. Thanks for the info!

  3. This is fascinating.
    I’d been taught that left-aligned labels are preferred, to support the prototypical F-shaped eye-tracking heatmap of web browsing. The idea is that it supports easy vertical scanning.
