St. Paul University Dumaguete, the only Catholic University in Negros Oriental, with primary to tertiary levels and graduate school, in Dumaguete City; opens an opportunity to the College of Arts, Sciences and Education students to have an international practice teach exposure in Archdiocese of Thare-Nongseng, Thailand. This partnership addresses the first objectives of the ASEAN which is to accelerate the economic growth, social progress and cultural development in the region through joint endeavors in the spirit of equality and partnership.
October 15, 2019, SPUD entered into a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the Educational Affairs for The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of the Thare-NongSeng. Considering the percentage of .58% of the total Roman Catholics in Thailand over 69 million, Catholic priests are still persistent in evangelizing young people through quality catholic education. This is only attainable if they hire well-trained teachers.
Over the years, Filipino teachers contributed to the formation of young people in Thailand. In this program, graduating education students are exposed to the culture of Thailand, the learning styles of Thai- students, and the life of an OFW by immersing themselves in this one month practice teach exposure.
