Students do symposium

by Kalamalama staff

 

HPU students explored the notion of global citizen Nov. 8 in a Student Support Services Symposium at the Hawai‘i Loa campus that included a key note address by the chair of the Fulbright Commission and breakout sessions that tried to define global citizenship.

The overall goal of the symposium, according to Nancy Ellis, the vice president and dean of Student Support Services, was to develop and disseminate possible definitions of global citizenship in the hopes of offering a framework for students to establish and practice their own views and definitions.

The keynote speaker was Caroline Matano Yang, head of the Fulbright Commission, which arranges grants and fellowships so students and faculty can travel and study abroad. This was followed by one-hour, small group breakout sessions, after which everyone reassembled for an open discussion about whether or not global citizenship exists in a meaningful way and how it is presented here at HPU.

The symposium took place while this issue of Kalamalama was being printed, so photographs, and the records of the breakout and general sessions, will be published in our Dec. 1 issue.
