Subject: Russian newsgroup on new media

Dear Networkers:
    Relcom is considering the creation of a new newsgroup,
"relcom.comp.newmedia," which would be a forum for discussions about
the use of new media forms (such as e-mail, Usenet and the Web) to
distribute news and information globally.  The group's clientele would
include computer experts as well as journalists and, of course, anyone
else interested in the subject.
    Relcom is the largest computer network in the former Soviet Union,
and such a newsgroup would do much to widen the global discussion about
the future of online media.
    I am trying to help Relcom's Tatiana Savenkova get out the word about
the call for votes -- with a deadline of January 31.  The CFV (in
English and Russian KOI-7) is archived at ftp://eskimo.com/GlasNews/cfv.
It also has been posted to the newsgroup "relcom.talk." For further
information, you can contact Tatiana at tis@kiae.su.
    Please consider sending her your vote of support.
    This message is being posted to fsumedia, friends, online-news,
INTCAR-L and the newsgroups "alt.journalism" and "comp.infosystems."
Please excuse any duplication and feel free to forward this message as

Subject: CivilSoc: NEW NIS electronic mailing list

                 CCSI Announces CivilSoc Listserv

      Civil Society Resources for the NIS Available by E-Mail

Center for Civil Society International announces the start-up of
"CivilSoc," a new electronic mailing list of news and resources,
electronic and print, of interest to individuals and organizations
engaged in civil society institution-building projects in the NIS
(former USSR).  The electronic mailing list (or Listserv, as it is
commonly known) will be available, free of charge, to anyone with
access to e-mail.  It will consist of e-mail messages which are
delivered to everyone who signs up.  The list is made possible by
the Friends and Partners project, founded and operated by Greg
Cole of Knoxville, Tennessee, and Natasha Bulashova of Pushchino,
Russia.

Because some subscribers based in the NIS must pay for all
incoming mail, we intend to keep postings concise: an average of
1-3 kilobytes, with a monthly volume of around 20-30 kilobytes.
If you have longer messages to submit to the Listserv, please do
so, but we may edit them for length.

We hope that CivilSoc will grow over time and reflect the
interests of many subscribers.  Initially it will consist of
announcements about projects and resources, print and electronic,
that we post.  But we encourage all participants, especially those
in the NIS, to submit their own material for posting.

Examples of items that CivilSoc will contain include:

  *  Books and resources available in print and electronically
  *  Civil society institution building projects in the NIS
  *  Curriculum available via e-mail, and other distance learning
     materials
  *  Grant Opportunities
  *  Lists of e-mail contacts
  *  Reviews of Internet mailing lists (Listservs)
  *  Job opportunities
  *  Brief profiles of 3rd sector organizations worth knowing
     about

Reviews of electronic resources will include directions for
retrieving them, even by users who only have e-mail access.

Topics that CivilSoc will cover include:

  *  Agriculture
  *  Art
  *  American studies
  *  Business
  *  Civic education
  *  Consumer protection
  *  Criminal justice
  *  Disabilities
  *  Environment
  *  Health
  *  Law
  *  Media
  *  NGO organizational development
  *  Public administration
  *  Social welfare

A regular feature will be an electronic edition of CCSI's monthly
newsletter, "Civil Society ... East and West."

CivilSoc is an automated Listserv meaning you are responsible for
signing on to the list and taking yourself off.

To subscribe to Civilsoc, send a one-line e-mail message with the
words:

      subscribe civilsoc firstname lastname

to the following address:

      listproc@solar.rtd.utk.edu

If you have any trouble you can contact CCSI at:
ccsi@u.washington.edu

In order for you to get an idea of what we will be putting up on
the Listserv, we will mail you separately a sample posting from
the November 1994 issue of CCSI's newsletter.

The American University in Bulgaria seeks to fill two  accounting

graduates are welcome to apply; one Finance position  (corporate,
international and banking). PhD required; two strategy  positions
(PhD,  DBA required or equivalent work experience) For all  posi-

THE  AMERICAN UNIVERSITY IN BULGARIA: The American University  in
Bulgaria (AUBG), located in Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria, started class-
es  in 1991, with the purpose of offering a 4-year  undergraduate
American Liberal Arts education in a Balkan setting. Its  general
mission  is to provide an intellectual atmosphere  that  provides
the learning needed for Balkan citizens and institutions to  join
the  mainstream  of western education, join the  emerging  global
economy,  and create a civil society - a society that is  steeped
in  the  rule  of law, universal human  rights,  and  traditional
liberalism.

Specifically,  AUBG  seeks  to graduate students  who  have  been
exposed  to the world in these broad terms. The chosen method  of
accomplishing these goals is a liberal arts education;  an educa-
tion  based  on traditional western concepts of liberal  arts  as
originating in the Renaissance - a tradition that provides criti-
cal thinking, knowledge to use critical thinking and professional
skills to use the knowledge. The faculty, through the development
and  execution  of  a distinctive curriculum  is  supporting  the
accomplishment of the overall vision and mission of the university.

The initial majors at AUBG (applied economics, business  adminis-
tration, computer science, English, history, journalism,  politi-
cal science, southeast European studies) were selected as import-
ant  in meeting the needs of the university's customers -   stud-
ents, balkan societies, and balkan social institutions. There are
three major components in the curriculum. Core classes,  designed
to provide basic writing, computer, and thinking skills.  General
education  courses  designed  to provide a wide  ranging  set  of
viewpoints and opinions, while professional education to  provide
a  potential  work forces, both within and outside  academe.  All
three  sets are to further the goals of a liberal arts  education
within the work places of the Balkans.

Within  the  curriculum, AUBG faculty is  assuring  a  continuing
broad education throughout the four years through cross-discipli-
nary activities - cross-disciplinary team teaching,  cross-disci-
plinary  course listings, and cross-institutional  teaching.  The
latter includes inviting professors and occupational  profession-
als to participate in the education of AUBG students and  sending
the students into the wider social environment to work and learn.

BUSINESS  CURRICULUM: The intent of the AUBG business  curriculum
is  to provide students with an ability to make profound  changes
in  any  environment in which they choose to work.  The  business
curriculum is based on two fundamental assumptions: business is a
social science - not a mathematical science; successful business-
es,  in the late 20th century, function as interdependent  reali-
ties.  Realities that integrate into the cultural norms,  ethics,
and  values  of  the local and regional cultures  in  which  they
operate  and  create new constellations from local  and  regional
groupings,  while maintaining a strong core id entity  for  them-
selves.  The business curriculum is designed from  these  assump-
tions.  Its  purpose is twofold: (1) provide  an  education  that
permits those graduating from it to have the knowledge and  skill
to lead the necessary changes from a command to a market-oriented
economy;  (2) assure graduates can lead themselves and others  in
integrating  their business education in a wider social  context.
Particularly,  the curriculum provides the basis for students  to
(1)  identify  key constituencies (customers) for whom  they  can
work and thereby extend western business concepts, education  and
training, (2) learn and use communications methodologies required
by  key  constituencies, and  (3) learn and use  appropriate  and
effective  techniques  and tools for measurement of  results  ob-
tained  in the class r oom and in the general  business  environ-
ment.  Its graduates should be able to work in global  companies,
Bulgarian companies, or be able to start up their own  enterpris-
es.  The  AUBG business curriculum  is designed  to  provide  the
basic business skills needed by a graduate, a broad understanding
of  the  social  context in which business takes  place  and  the
analytical skills needed to integrate the entire learning process
at AUBG.

There  is  a mix of business courses, core  course,  and  general
education courses throughout the four year education,  permitting
parallel learning of business skills and life skills. The general
education  categories  are designed to  provide  both  analytical
skills  and specific knowledge in fields other than business.  We
recommend  that business majors also take courses in Balkan  his-
tory,  to  assure a deeper understanding, of the  region  from  a
fresh  point  of view; Shakespeare literary analysis  to  gain  a
deeper  understanding of the human condition; an  anthropological
course  studying ethnicity and its role in the Balkans; a  public
speaking or theater course from the fine arts. To further broaden
the student's experience base, the business curriculum has  elec-
tive  courses  from other social  science  disciplines.

BUSINESS  CURRICULUM  INNOVATIONS TO MEET THE AUBG  MISSION:  The
basis of the curriculum is to create a basic paradigm shift  from
a producer/consumer paradigm to a customer supplier paradigm.  It
is also designed to fit into a framework that will prepare  stud-
ents  for further graduate study in the US and for employment  in
global firms.

The  business curriculum to be innovative, at  the  undergraduate
level,  in three ways: (1) it is highly rigorous in  demanding  a
melding of theory, analysis, and action; (2) courses require that
students demonstrate their ability to work with on-going problems
and institutions located in Bulgaria; (3) learn to work to gether
in  ways  that develop leadership and  motivational  skills.  The
purpose  of  these innovations is to inculcate  in  students  the
ability  to understand change and ways to effect  change  through
the concept of constant improvement. The overall purpose of these
innovations  is  to  create a learning  organization  within  the
business  curriculum - an organization in which everyone is  both
teacher  and stud ent. Of the business electives, 73% are  taught
by  disciplines  other than the business faculty.  This  provides
assurance  for the development of a broad basis of  understanding
of business, business skills and their use in the business  arena
as well as in society as a whole.
