USEP to hold 2nd nat'l confab on IP higher education

As part of the University of Southeastern Philippines' shared vision with indigenous peoples of the Philippines for self-determination through higher education, a 2nd National Conference on Indigenous Peoples' Higher Education in the Philippines is set to happen on August 13-15, 2008 at the USEP Obrero campus.

With the theme "Valuing Traditions in Shaping the Future," the conference aims to provide an avenue for IP groups and concerned institutions to forge synergetic partnerships in helping IPs help themselves by ensuring quality and culturally-appropriate education.

Among the highlights of the confab are research-based paper presentations, performances that showcase traditions of the IPs, cultural tour, and visit to the Pamulaan Center for Indigenous Peoples' Education, believed to be the first institution that offers tertiary education exclusively for the IPs in the country. Paper presentations are categorized into songs, dances and literature; sustainable resource management, community building and education.

The keynote speaker of the conference, Benjamin Abadiano, president, Assisi Development Foundation has over 20 years of work experience in social development, including 6 years on peace building initiatives. Specifically, he has been involved in education and training for indigenous peoples in various IP communities in the country, rehabilitation and peace advocacy for war affected communities in Mindanao and in various socio-economic and cultural programs for marginalized communities in the Philippines. Other speakers of the 3-day confab are Dr. Terry Simpson, Division Chair, Education Professor of Secondary Education, Maryville University, Maryville, Tennessee and Dr. Carlos Buasen, Jr. Director IV, Office on Education, Culture & Health, National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP).

The activity is endorsed by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and the Philippine Association of State Universities and Colleges (PASUC). (USEP-PIA XI) [top]
