|Title:||Oral History - Christopher Vecoli|
|Abstract:||Chris Vecoli is an Illinois native raised during the time in the Vietnam War. After getting in touch with various cultures and international groups, Chris decided to work as a professor in Parkland College and continue his work helping others improve their relationships with people of another culture. In this interview, Chris talks about some of the issues international students and faculty face when coming to the University of Illinois, as well as the things our community need to do in order to improve our readiness. After being involved heavily in helping international students and employees gain valuable rights in workplaces and school, Chris concludes that activism focused on the international community will be vital to the growing community of the University of Illinois and colleges countrywide.|
