Gaddi Vasquez to discuss how to work with Americans, with consuls from more than five countries

Peace Corps Director Gaddi Vasquez will present a guest lecture on "How to Work with Americans" at a San Francisco State University class for Bay Area-based foreign consuls. He will draw upon his three years in his current position.

The 10-week course, titled Discovering America: U.S. Government and Foreign Policy, History and Society, is designed to introduce consuls general to aspects of life in the United States that they might not otherwise have an opportunity to encounter.

Topics include U.S. history and government, San Francisco political history and government, American culture, ethnic communities, business and labor, nongovernmental organizations, U.S. foreign relations and American media. SFSU faculty members and community and business leaders give the class lectures.

The class is believed to be the only of its kind in California.

Gaddi Vasquez, director of the Peace Corps, and 20 Bay Area-based consuls from such countries as Mexico, Korea, France, Ecuador and the Philippines.

6:30 - 7:30 p.m., Monday, April 25.

Room 307, San Francisco State University Downtown Center, 425 Market St. (at Fremont Street), San Francisco.
