Silliman University Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Betsy Joy B. Tan (leftmost) formally welcomes to the campus United States Embassy Assistant Cultural Affairs Officer Mr. Joseph Tordella and Thomas Jefferson Information Center Deputy Director Ms. Pong Aureus during their visit on February 3 to 5. Mr. Tordella was in Silliman for a talk on “The K12 Educational System in the United States: Its Implications to the Philippine Educational Reforms.” Together with Ms. Aureus, he also interviewed and selected the six delegates (one teacher/community leader and five students) to the monthlong Youth Leadership Program with Southeast Asia Program scheduled in April this year in the United States. Dumaguete City was chosen as this year’s recipient primarily because of the American Studies Resource Center (ASRC) at the Robert B. and Metta J. Silliman Library. Described by Mr. Tordella as “the window to America,” the ASRC holds a rich collection of books and multimedia materials about the American way of life, and is open to the public for free.
