VOLUNTEER INITIATIONS TAKEN AT THE UNIVERSITY OF THE AEGEAN
Since the year 1989 where he and his family moved from California USA to Mytilene, he took with the help and contribution of his wife Andronique Karasmanoglou, the initiative among others on the following volunteer actions:
1. Summer co-op programs for students and development of lists with potential employers.
2. Connection of the University with the industry through the developed list of the co-op programs.
3. Organization of meetings with student presentations of co-op results.
4. Introduction to co-op programs abroad through the IAESTE and development of potential employer list.
5. Organization of athletic activities of students. Supported the organization of athletic event of all Greek Universities in Mytilene in 1993.
6. Organization of cultural activities of students. Supported the participation of the University of the Aegean in three major cultural events: 1992 NTUA Athens, 1994 U of Patras, 1996 AUTH Thessaloniki, where the University of the Aegean won first prices on the presentation of cultural, art, and scientific activities.
