Fielding Graduate University News
Fielding doctoral faculty member, Dr. Christine G.T. Ho in collaboration with James Loucky, co-authored the recently published book, Humane Migration: Establishing Legitimacy and Rights for Displaced People.
Humane Migration provides a fresh look at the debate on international migration in general and immigration to the United States, Europe and Canada in particular. Arguing that migration is a human right, the authors call for better policies that recognize these rights and the many benefits that migrants provide to their new communities. This book is an essential text for policy makers, students and activists who seek justice for the world's vulnerable populations and is available for purchase from various sellers.
The popular discourse on immigration in North America and Western Europe is usually framed in terms of violations of national law, fueled by fear and propped up by the myths of nationhood. The rhetoric maintains that immigrants threaten jobs, the local economy, and the cultural identity of a country. However, these views fail to consider the ironic reality: that the developed world, which tries so hard to keep poor people out, itself produces the systemic economic conditions that foster migration.
Dr. Ho is a doctoral faculty member in the School of Human & Organizational Development at Fielding Graduate University. Trained in social anthropology, Dr. Ho has been a professor for more than 20 years. As an anthropologist, she brings to Fielding a worldview that centers on multiculturalism and cultural diversity as well as equality and social justice.

Jim Adams, Barney Slowey, and Roger Wistrcill planned the weekend with activities to model a typical MA-CEL week end, which included constructivist activities, energizers, learning, and laughter. Jim, Barney, and Roger shared information about the 14-month accelerated laptop MA-CEL program that they designed and have implemented in Rice Lake and Kimberly, Wisconsin. The Learning Community Framework was presented by Judy Jamieson, president and CEO of Learning Quest Associates, Inc., followed by activities around facilitation, stages of community, multiple intelligences, values, and community processes.
The weekend was full of laughter and surprises-including a spring snow storm. The MACEL program in Wisconsin continues to grow. Fielding is fortunate to have dedicated educators with a commitment to improving education for all students through the MA-CEL program.
Richard and Yakko Meyers Establish Fund
President Richard Meyers and his wife Yakko have made a significant gift of $10,000 to Fielding Graduate University and, in the process, established an exciting new fund: The Richard and Yakko Meyers Endowed Entrepreneurial Fund.
The spirit of the fund is to encourage all affiliated with the university to remain true to our core values and mission and to think broadly about what Fielding can do and what it can become. The entrepreneurial fund may be used to support exploration of new ideas or the actual implementation of new ideas or programs.
In their first months with Fielding, the Meyers have liked what they have seen. "We also imagine fantastic potential," Richard says. "Our mutual future is wrapped up in the power of dreams and what they can portend. Our dream for Fielding is simple: growth to insure positive life-changing experiences for our students, in an atmosphere of financial stability, with global social justice impact."
Our hope is that faculty, staff, alumni, and students will all join in Fielding's exploration of new ideas for education, social justice, diversity, improved effectiveness and efficiency, and new revenue-producing programs and collaborations."
