  1. I love CESNUR, despite their controversial reputation, for lots of reasons. The thing I like the most is the international character of the organization–a diversity that is reflected in this program.

  4. Taysom: what is CESNUR’s controversial reputation? I am unenlightened on the matter and you’ve piqued my curious–pray, do tell!

  5. CESNUR is considered by some [an adjective fails me here] to be, ahem, “pro-cult.” To get a taste of the intensity of this nonsense, google CESNUR and “Pro cult.” Bring a barf bag.
