University of Wisconsin-Sheboygan

Global education focus of panel discussion at UW-Sheboygan

The University of Wisconsin-Sheboygan invites the Sheboygan area community to a special panel discussion on the importance of education and its role in improving society and reducing poverty on a global scale on Tuesday, October 5 at 7 p.m. in Room 2114.

“The Importance of Education on a Global Scale,” which is co-sponsored by the UW-Sheboygan/UW-Manitowoc Upward Bound program and the campus Special Programs Committee, will feature several special guests. Panel members will include the Rev. Elijah Musoke of Uganda, Lakeland College Professor Jeff Elzinga and several teachers from Malawi, Africa, all of whom will address the positive changes that education could make in many third-world countries and how to achieve such widespread education for the masses. Elzinga is also the director of Lakeland's Malawi Teacher Education Program.

“This public question and answer seminar is intended to bring focus upon the reality of education being the most effective tool to help people across the globe better their lives. Education provides people with independence to survive and thrive by their own means,” said Steve Roelse, Upward Bound advisor and Special Programs Committee member.

The panel discussion will begin at 7 p.m. in the UW-Sheboygan Wombat Room (Room 2114). The event is free and open to the public. Please bring your questions and topics for this open forum panel discussion event.
