Mark Jakubowycz welcoming everyone to a fireside chat hosted in his home in Cleveland, OH

Andrii Yasinovskyi, Dean of the UCU Humanities Department, welcomed UCU supporters to a fireside chat on the subject of “Restoring Ukraine’s Narrative.” The small group event took place at the home of Mark and Daria Jakubowycz in Cleveland, OH. It was underwritten by Friends of UCU in Cleveland and organized with the help of UCU Chair of the Board Taras Szmagala, Jr. and his wife Helen Jarem. The chat was a unique opportunity to have an intimate, in-depth dialogue with the Dean about the situation in Ukraine, its impact on UCU, and how UCU is delivering on its mission of educating future leaders despite the challenging circumstances of war. Dr. Yasinovskyi is currently based at the Nanovic Institute for European Studies at Notre Dame University researching post-Byzantine influences on early modern Ukrainian theological thought.
