Summer program at UW-Green Bay will offer lessons on Hmong culture

GREEN BAY-The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is offering a summer program for school personnel and community members interested in learning more about the Hmong to better serve Hmong students and the community.

This program is being coordinated by UW-Green Bay's Outreach Office and will be held June 17-18 at the Business Assistance Center on the Northeast Wisconsin Technical College campus, 2701 Larson Road, Green Bay.

"Exploring Hmong in Transitions: Enhancing Professional Best Practices," taught by UW-Green Bay Prof. Pao Lor, will focus on how cultural and immigration transitions affect the Hmong's social, academic and emotional needs in the United States and abroad.

Topics such as immigration, weddings, funerals, births, roles of women and men, school myth and perceptions of the United States' educational system are among those that will be explored and examined. Participants can gain a better understanding of the Hmong population and ways to improve and enhance instructional strategies or services to assist Hmong students and the community.

Fees for the program are $79 for non-credit instruction and $342.30 for one graduate credit. The non-credit program meets only on June 17.

Enrollment is limited to 35 students. Registration is due by Wednesday, May 28. Information and registration are available online at www.uwgb.edu/educationoutreach, by calling (920) 465-2480 or (800) 892-2118, or by sending an e-mail to educationoutreach@uwgb.edu.
