The Waynesburg University International Studies Program will host an international culture event at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 17, in the Goodwin Performing Arts Center.

The program, "International Culture and Diversity," will initiate an understanding of different cultures through guest speakers as well as country talks and cultural items. Admission is free, and the public is cordially invited to attend.

Dr. Sut Sakchutchawan, associate professor of international business and director of the International Studies Program at Waynesburg University, said a program such as this is significant in a rapidly changing world.

According to Dr. Robert Kefferstan, Interim Dean of Undergraduate Studies, this program is part of a larger effort on campus to make students aware of culture and diversity as well as providing opportunities for international study. All involved in this event are to be commended for their participation.

In addition to hearing student presentations related to study abroad experiences, Dr. Steve Franklin, a representative of Tokyo Christian University, will discuss the importance of culture and Japanese society as they lead to the success of economic power.
