Sawadee! Mabuhay! Making the World as the New Classroom By Roger Federico

The College of Local Administration (COLA), Khon Kaen University warmly welcomed students and teachers from the School of International Hospitality and Tourism Management, University of Baguio on June 6, 2024, as part of the second phase of this year’s Student Exchange Program between the two institutions.
Led by the esteemed dean of COLA, Asst. Prof. Sirisak Loachankham, the event marked the continuation of a successful collaboration between the two institutions. Previously, in May 2024, ten COLA students visited the University of Baguio and participated in various activities under the theme “Grooming Global Citizens, Cultivating Sustainability”.
This time, the UB students will be staying for two months at Khon Kaen University and will be enrolled in Thai Language and Multiculturalism Classes. Additionally, they will have the opportunity to visit cultural and historical sites, gaining a deeper understanding of Thailand’s culture, particularly focusing on the Northeastern Region.
In his welcome remarks, Dean Sirisak emphasized that the exchange program aims to foster cultural exchange, internationalization, and the development of global citizens. Both universities are committed to providing valuable learning experiences for their students through these collaborative initiatives.
