Fourth Exchange Program between students of the St. Paul Institute(SPI) and students from The University of Notre Dame Australia(UNDA).
- January 22, 2019
On January 4, 2019, twenty-three students and two professors from The University of Notre Dame Australia(UNDA), participated in Exchange Program of Knowledge, Culture, Civilization, History, and Society at St. Paul Institute(SPI). This program is always held yearly in January. And this is the fourth time when this program has been organized under the cooperation between St. Paul Institute and The University of Notre Dame Australia.
This 4th Exchange Program was held from January 4 to 18, 2019 under the leadership of SPI, facilitated by the Student Life Office, and actively participated by the group of students from SPI and UNDA.
All activities of this program provide students with an opportunity to study in a different country and environment experiencing including history, culture, civilization, as well as meeting new friends to enrich their personal development. In fact, our students discussed and shared knowledge on the following topics:
- History - Colonization
- Politics and Social Media
- Women and Gender
- Religious beliefs, and practices
- Education System
- Multiculturalism, Indigenous People and Ethnic Group
- Health, Medicine and the Environment
- Jobs and workplaces.
As a result, we can say that this program really provides a lot of experiences and knowledge to students, not only through discussing the above-mentioned topics but also through staying in the student center, having meals together, and taking a joint trip like one family.
On behalf of the management of SPI, we would like to thank Pro. Martin Drum and Pro. Robbie Busch, who have led a team of students from UNDA for spending your valuable time with us for these two weeks. Together, we also thank the lecturers of SPI for helping our students to do research for documents and presentations on their topics. Especially, thank all the students who worked very hard and actively engaged in our program to achieve this great success.
