BANGKOK UNIVERSITY (BU) IN Thailand is the new partner of Silliman University in service-learning (S-L).

Twenty-one BU college students were enrolled in Silliman’s S-L program from October 10 to 30.

This undertaking with BU expands the coverage of Silliman’s SL program, which has been hosting students from universities in Japan, Korea,Taiwan and the United States. The International Christian University in Tokyo is one of the University’s more active partner institutions.

The students from Bangkok were divided into five teams, and were as- signed to different communities and host families. This arrangement exposed the Thai students to the Filipino way of life and offered a localized view of social realities.

SL is a teaching pedagogy that has been institutionalized across all levels in Silliman. It provides avenue for students to interact with communities. The students are graded based on their inputs in their journals and during processing sessions.
