DECORAH, IOWA (USA)SHEILA RADFORD-HILL, Ph.D., the Executor Director of Luther College’s Diversity Center has announced that the academic institution will participate in the worldwide observance of 2010 International Men’s Day (www.international-mens-day.com) on Friday, 19 November 2010. . The theme for 2010 International Men's Day is -- "Our Children ... Our Future" – which acknowledges the 48 hour partnership that International Men's Day shares with Universal Children's Day which is celebrated on 20 November 2010 and is endorsed by the United Nations. International Men's Day celebrates and honors the contributions and sacrifices of Men to our families, communities, and our world. It is a worldwide observance that resonates with Women as well as Men. In 2009, Men and Women from countries throughout our global village which included Singapore, the United Kingdom, Moldova, Germany, Brazil, Holland, New Zealand, Hungary, South Africa, Georgia, Malta, United States, Italy, Ghana, Canada, Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, Australia, and India celebrated International Men's Day under the theme "Positive Male Role Models".


"Encouraging men, in partnership with women, to take care of themselves, their children, and their communities is a message that the world is listening for. We want to elevate our thinking about the power that men have to really make a difference worldwide and we want the Luther community to celebrate positive manhood,” Dr. Radford-Hill commented when reached for comment concerning Luther College’s participation in 2010 International Men’s Day.


“We are excited about Luther College’s participation in the global observance of 2010 International Men’s Day. It is an honor to work with Dr. Radford-Hill and Luther College,” remarked Diane A. Sears, the United States Coordinator for 2010 International Men’s Day.


International Men’s Day was founded in 1999 by Jerome Teelucksingh, Ph.D., a faculty member of the History Department at the University of West Indies in Trinidad and Tobago. Six (6) Core Objectives comprise the framework and foundation for individuals and organizations celebrating International Men’s Day throughout our global village. The six (6) Core Objectives for International Men’s Day which were established in 1999 by Dr. Teelucksingh are:

DRAWING A STRAIGHT LINE TO RECIDIVISM, SUSTAINABILITY, AND RENEWED PROSPERITY IN PHILADELPHIA

Heralded by many as the “Next Great American City”, the fifth largest metropolitan area in the United States, the City of Philadelphia is on the move.  Real estate developers are transforming an area between Market and Chestnut Streets spanning from 11th to 12th Streets once considered the epicenter of Philadelphia into East Market, a towering and expansive structure which will be home to residential units, restaurants, retail outlets, and office space. Looking westward, a cluster of gleaming glass and steel skyscrapers which rise above the end of the Walnut Street Bridge and which appear to obfuscate the line of demarcation between the City of Philadelphia’s downtown business district, University City, and the neighborhoods surrounding Drexel University and the University of Pennsylvania come into view .. These developments are helping to create excitement about Philadelphia. Despite the perceived “renewed prosperity” of Philadelphia’s downtown business district an…

SEEING INVISIBLE MEN AND BOYS: JEROME TEELUCKSINGH, Ph.D.

On 19 November 2015, a panel discussion was held at the Student Activity Center at The University of the West Indies, in Trinidad and Tobago (in the Caribbean). It was spearheaded by an undergraduate female student, Ms. Michelle Roopnarine, and featured Dr. John Gedeon of the University's Office of Planning and Development; Ramia Coleman, the Chairman of the all-male Hall of Residence on campus; and Jonathan St. Louis-Nahous, the Guild of Students' Representative for Part-time and Evening Students. The panel successfully generated some interest and lively discussion among a cross-section of students on campus and across faculties.
