About this event

On February 24, the world stood watching as the sovereign nation of Ukraine was invaded by Russian troops. Countries around the world have now united in unprecedented ways during this humanitarian crisis to provide critical support to the Ukrainian people. Walsh University invites you to join us in solidarity as we offer a prayer for peace and justice in Ukraine and host a panel discussion to more about the history of Russia-Ukraine relations and the current and projected global impacts of this war.

We will welcome special guest Fr. Vsevolod Shevchuk (Fr. Sal) from Holy Ghost Ukrainian Catholic Church and offer a prayer service led by Walsh University Chaplain Father Thomas Cebula.

Panel Discussion Moderated by Walsh University President, Dr. Tim Collins featuring:

  • Dr. Bill Davis - Associate Professor, Government and Foreign Affairs, Walsh University
  • Dr. Rachel Constance - Associate Professor, History, Walsh University
  • Philip Kopatz’19 - Walsh Alumnus & OSU Master’s Student studying Slavic and Eastern European Studies with a focus on the history and International Relations of Ukraine and Russia
