E. Maxine Bruhns (wearing red) stands with members of the Children’s International Summer Village, an organization that brings children from many nations to live in an American city for a month. Pittsburgh was the chosen city this year.

The 60 international visitors toured Pitt’s Nationality Rooms on July 16 and participated in a reception that featured an international cookie table. The group’s children, whose sponsors asked that they not be identified, represented Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Egypt, Germany, India, Indonesia, Jordan, Norway, and the Philippines. Bruhns is director of the Nationality Rooms and of Pitt’s Intercultural Exchange Program.
