12:10pm – 1:00pm – Improving Educational Outcomes in the Diverse Social Milieu of the Philippines
Location: Wyatt 223
Peabody International Lunch Series (Lunch Provided)
Presented by: Roselle Mendoza (Humphrey Fellowship Program – Philippines)
Are you aware that the Philippines has more than 100 ethnic tribes and about 111 indigenous languages? Multiculturalism may bring diverse cultural riches to this island nation, but it also has complex implications for curriculum, pedagogy, and school climate. Despite a mandate in 2011 by the Department of Education that all schools adopt the National Indigenous Peoples’ (IP) Education Policy Framework, indigenous communities continue to be marginalized and lack access to culturally appropriate education. In Roselle Mendoza’s province of Nueva Vizcaya, indigenous communities are underserved with respect to the provision of basic education services; hear her discuss how she and other educational leaders address the issues of access, efficiency and quality in this complex social environment.
2:00pm – 8:00pm – Green Dot Bystander Workshop
Location: Sarratt 325/327
The training is open to all Vanderbilt-affiliated people and will include dinner.
Interactive and Informative, the Green Dot bystander workshops provide an in-depth understanding about the Green Dot curriculum, and include a comprehensive overview of power-based personal violence (intimate partner violence, sexual violence, stalking, identity-based targeting, and bullying); a conversation about common obstacles preventing people from intervening; an opportunity to explore Green Dot for every personality; and a time for developing Green Dots you can implement in your daily lives.
7:30pm – 10:00pm – Vanderbilt University Opera Theatre and Orchestra: Die Fledermaus
Location: Ingram Hall
Vanderbilt Opera Theatre and Vanderbilt University Orchestra present Die Fledermaus, Johann Strauss’ delightful sacher torte dropped in the decadent chocolate box of 1920s Berlin. Nightclubs, dancing girls, mistaken identities, and jilted lovers, all served up by the king of waltz. Free and Open to the Public.
