Uncovered Truths Of The Inequalities Encountered By Female Educators, Rachel Katoll Dec 2018

Uncovered Truths Of The Inequalities Encountered By Female Educators, Rachel Katoll

Undergraduate Voices

This paper was conducted to illustrate the paradox of a female dominated field praising male educators over their female counterparts. This is proven to be the case through workplace mistreatment, professional growth opportunities, and struggles encountered through recruitment. Through this paper, I evaluate the tear down of female educators as men become the prioritized employee. The information drawn together throughout this paper came from a collection of online sources, personal interviews, and articles.


Advocating For More Experiential Learning Strategies In Medical School, Seth D. Adams Jun 2018

Advocating For More Experiential Learning Strategies In Medical School, Seth D. Adams

Undergraduate Voices

When it comes to learning and teaching, there are many ways for teachers and students to maximize the amount of learning that happens in the schooling environment. The focus of this paper is the effects of experiential learning in medical education. This pedagogy is very common in many teaching strategies and is widely used, debated, and studied throughout academia. This paper will introduce experiential learning as it is seen broadly throughout all fields of study and practice, but will then specifically focus on experiential learning and its effects on medical education. Using two different types of experiential learning, community-based learning ...

Storytelling And Cross-Cultural Communication, Jia Yang Jan 2018

Storytelling And Cross-Cultural Communication, Jia Yang

Proceedings: Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus

Misunderstanding happens when a person is trying to apply a story of his/her native culture to people from another culture, and do not realize that the story might be interpreted differently by the audience. The same story may not deliver the same results as you predict in your native culture.


My International Experience And Perceptions Of American Culture, Blaise Mosengo Jan 2018

My International Experience And Perceptions Of American Culture, Blaise Mosengo

Proceedings: Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus

I came to UD from Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo, one of the 54 countries in Africa. The Democratic Republic of Congo includes more than 250 tribes. Two principal values can define the Congolese culture, as well as the cultures of many other countries in Africa: hospitality and attachment to the family. In Congolese cultures, strangers are welcome and given particular care. In fact, being together is of a great value in this cultural environment. There is little room for individualism. We exist first as members of a family or a clan.

The perceptions of many ...


My Experience At The University Of Dayton, Amal Alrasheed Jan 2018

My Experience At The University Of Dayton, Amal Alrasheed

Proceedings: Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus

“I am Amal. What is your name?” This “easy” phrase is what I used to say when I wanted to integrate within a new community back in Saudi Arabia. However, this phrase was the toughest phrase I could say out loud when I was a freshman at the University of Dayton. I faced a lot of challenges when I first came to UD. I was not prepared to handle the differences between my culture and the American culture. I wanted to be part of the UD community; however, people seemed uncomfortable whenever I opened a conversation. I had a tough ...

Two Communities = One Home, Yasir Fraish Al Busaidi Jan 2018

Two Communities = One Home, Yasir Fraish Al Busaidi

Proceedings: Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus

On October 29, 1996 a young boy was born in a beautiful country called Oman. ... This boy had everything he needed: a loving family, warm weather, great food. However, one day he decided that he wants to try something new. He wanted to leave his comfort zone. So, he came up with a big decision—to study abroad. This decision wasn't the easiest dissection to make. However, with the support of his family and friends, he bought his ticket and he left his family for the first time in his life.

He left home, the familiar food, the warm ...

Themes Which Shaped My Professional Journey, Jusuf Salih Jan 2018

Themes Which Shaped My Professional Journey, Jusuf Salih

Proceedings: Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus

By the emergence of the new conditions of fast communication among diverse communities today, we are witnessing many changes in social, political, economic, and other aspects of modern societies. With mass communication and social media, the barriers among nations are falling, thus giving opportunities for openness and better understanding — but also to misleading and deceptive information. Therefore, these changes demand redefinition and reevaluation of the newly emerged conditions and accordingly adjustments to the new circumstances. Issues related to religion, ethnicity, and nationality are particularly complex and sensitive matters that can bridge but also divide people; therefore, they require thorough attentiveness ...


Broadening My Educational Experience, Alexis Bovell Jan 2018

Broadening My Educational Experience, Alexis Bovell

Proceedings: Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus

For as long as I can remember, I have appreciated different cultures. My father and my maternal grandmother are from Trinidad; so I always wanted to learn and understand a world I was not able to see and experience on an everyday basis. I noticed my experience growing up was different than most of my American peers as a result of my family’s diverse customs and culture. This opened my eyes to the impact culture has on a person and who they are. This fascination grew into self-determination to understand not only my own family’s culture and history ...

What Are The Benefits Of Education Abroad? What Do We Convey To Ud Students About This?, Karen Mcbride Jan 2018

What Are The Benefits Of Education Abroad? What Do We Convey To Ud Students About This?, Karen Mcbride

Proceedings: Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus

Some of the benefits student get by studying abroad include:

  • Employability
  • Working within a diverse climate
  • Experience of the “other” (important given our racial demographics in EA)
  • Thinking/Acting creatively in a fluctuating environment
  • Foreign language skills
  • Intercultural development

UD’s SAIL Program (Semester Abroad and Intercultural Leadership) is a specific example of how we are being more intentional about intercultural development and positive intercultural engagement within the UD community.


Create Connections; Address Frustrations; Exercise Compassion, Susan Wawrose Jan 2018

Create Connections; Address Frustrations; Exercise Compassion, Susan Wawrose

Proceedings: Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus

The story of international education cannot be fully told without mentioning the frustrations felt by everyone involved. I believe one of the reasons for this conference is that we also need to talk about the many challenges of making international education work well.

So, how do we proceed? What are the next steps? ... I believe the way ahead involves clear-eyed and ongoing attention to the well-being—at all levels—of all the stakeholders.

Significance Of Immersion Programs, Mary Niebler Jan 2018

Significance Of Immersion Programs, Mary Niebler

Proceedings: Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus

Through our international immersion programs, we hope to have students encounter, share, and grow their perspective of the world and its inhabitants. Some of these encounters occur through direct service; some through learning engagements with government officials, NGO directors, survivors of war, migrants, teachers, doctors, lawyers, families, peers, and many others. Each Immersion is unique, and each student may gain something different. But our hope is to have students return from an international experience with new commitments to promoting global solidarity and the human dignity of all peoples—starting back here with our campus community. ...

At this point in U ...

Why Globalization Matters, J W. Terry Jan 2018

Why Globalization Matters, J W. Terry

Proceedings: Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus

Globalization is a choice; inclusivity is also a choice. When you have privilege or power, you can choose what you like and what you don’t like. People tend to associate with what they value. That is fine; however, the problem exists in the question of “why do we value what we value?” I would argue that your values have been shaped by the media, false or incomplete historical narratives, and of course your upbringing. Therefore, your values have been skewed by factors like racism, white supremacy, simple stereotypes.


Institutional Relevance, Timothy Kao Jan 2018

Institutional Relevance, Timothy Kao

Proceedings: Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus

To better defend U.S. interests and more effectively address global unrest, we must foster greater mutual understanding. Educating international students is one of the most effective ways to do that. Rather than allow shifts in the global education marketplace to determine who studies here, the United States must proactively seek to educate a more globally and economically diverse population.


Global Connections And The Marianists, Una M. Cadegan Jan 2018

Global Connections And The Marianists, Una M. Cadegan

Proceedings: Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus

For the past ten or fifteen years, I have been waging a one-person stealth campaign—I guess I am going to uncloak it today. That campaign is to change the university’s motto from Pro Deo et Patria (For God and Country) to Pro Deo et Mundo (For God and the World). “For God and Country,” adopted in 1920, reflected the sense among many American Catholics right after the First World War that they were, in a new way, fully American. “For God and the World” reflects our deepening sense today that our commitments and our awareness need to extend ...


Thinking Critically About “Community”, Christpher Agnew Jan 2018

Thinking Critically About “Community”, Christpher Agnew

Proceedings: Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus

Why hold this symposium now? In the past year, we have seen in this country a contest over definitions of community, over the basic rights of immigrants in this country, over the role of the U.S. in the wider world. Tensions are high, demagogues are out in force, and the results have been frightening to those targeted by the state, and frightening to those who see in these developments something too reminiscent of the worst parts of the twentieth century. It is appropriate in moments like this to appreciate the successes and recognize the problems, both realized and potential ...


Introduction Of The Keynote Speaker: Imbolo Mbue, Amy E. Anderson Jan 2018

Introduction Of The Keynote Speaker: Imbolo Mbue, Amy E. Anderson

Proceedings: Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus

Imbolo Mbue is the author of Behold The Dreamers, a 2017 Oprah’s Book Club pick and winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award.

Mbue’s book is informed by her experience of being an immigrant and the experiences of the many immigrants that she knows. The journeys of our students and Ms. Mbue connect in Limbe: each summer a group of UD students travels to Cameroon for a cultural-immersion/study-abroad program.

Mbue’s work is particularly relevant as we have a national conversation about immigration. Behold the Dreamers explores the complexity and interrelationship of these journeys and their connection to ...


Provost Remarks: Global Voices Symposium, Paul H. Benson Jan 2018

Provost Remarks: Global Voices Symposium, Paul H. Benson

Proceedings: Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus

Our studies of and engagements with global matters—people and practices, languages and histories, values and geographies—should not be regarded merely as a kind of overlay upon or supplement to whatever we might be inclined to think of as “our own,” as local, as domestic, as home. Our home is the world, the entire world—past, present, and future—in all of its dazzling multiplicity and variety. Whatever risks might attach to a naïve cosmopolitanism that undervalues the significance of our particular, localized practices, meanings, and relationships, it is essential for us to acknowledge, to explore, and embrace all ...


Introductory Remarks: Global Voices On Campus, Julius A. Amin Jan 2018

Introductory Remarks: Global Voices On Campus, Julius A. Amin

Proceedings: Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus

Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus Symposium emerged in an atmosphere of optimism. During the last decade, UD’s profile as an international campus increased in several ways. With roughly 10 percent of its students identifying as international, the University restructured its curriculum to include more programming and course offerings that are global in nature and scholarly scope. There was an uptick in study abroad and cultural immersion programs. Simultaneously, UD’s efforts to recruit more domestic minority students, especially African American, Hispanic, and Native American students, is on the right trajectory. It is moving upwards. Last year ...


Concluding Remarks And Looking Ahead, Julius A. Amin Jan 2018

Concluding Remarks And Looking Ahead, Julius A. Amin

Proceedings: Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus

It is a truism that we live in a global village. Technology, communication, and the movement of people and ideas have blurred national and continental boundaries. Presentations from students, staff, faculty, and the administration at the Global Voices Symposium illustrated that concept. Themes of community, identity, human understanding, and hospitality were dominant.
