culture, traditions, and history of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States. Congress passed a joint Congressional Resolution in 1978 to commemorate Asian-Pacific American Heritage Week during the first week of May. This date was chosen because two important anniversaries occurred during this time: the arrival of the first Japanese immigrants in America on May 7, 1843 and the completion of the transcontinental railroad (by many Chinese laborers) on May 10, 1869. In 1990 Congress voted to expand it from a week to a month long celebration. In May 1992, the month of May was permanently designated as “Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month.”

Appel to Present at the Ohio Marriage and Family Therapy (OAMFT) Conference Dr. Jonathan Appel, Professor in the Department of Behavioral and Social Sciences at Tiffin University, together with his wife Dr. Dohee Kim-Appel, will present at the Ohio Marriage and Family Therapy (OAMFT) Conference in Akron on April 11, 2014. The research paper to be presented is entitled “The Relationship Between Bowen’s concept of Differentiation of Self and Measurements of Mindfulness.” This paper presents research data collected which had examined the relationship between the Bowen family therapy concept of differentiation of self and two measures of psychological mindfulness. Mindfulness represents an exciting new area in psychology, one that represents a blending of ancient Asian meditative techniques with modern behavioral science. The findings to be presented by Dr. Appel and his wife have meaningful implications for understanding the relationship of the constructs of differentiation of self and mindfulness as well as for the psychological assessment and treatment of psychopathology in individuals and families. Dr. Appel and Dr. Kim-Appel have been researching in both self-differentiation and mindfulness for a number of years and have numerous presentations in these areas. They have published peer-reviewed papers on the clinical and research implications of these constructs and have written a chapter on Bowen Family Therapy for a forthcoming textbook on Family Therapy.

ARTIST MATT TAYLOR TO VISIT CAMPUS APRIL 9 Artist Matt Taylor “Mr. Taylor” designs are about controlling focus, and creating compositions that guide the viewer’s eye. His aim is to emphasize design integrity, while meeting the needs of the client, collaborator, or piece of art. Mr. Taylor will visit Professor Melanie Trost’s Art History class on April 9. He will discuss his work as a street artist in the surrounding area. He has worked on several mural projects around Northwest Ohio, including the "Toledo Loves Love" wall and a project for Findlay High School.

Matt Taylor is a designer and illustrator who works and lives in the Historic Old West End District of Toledo, Ohio. Early years of non-stop drawing led to a lifelong interest in art and design. His focus is on creating work that deals with value and intricate detail, embracing imperfection and allowing the composition to build upon itself. He often draws inspiration from ancient engravings and classic tattoos. He has worked as a design director for SillyBrandz Global for the past seven years and is a founding member of Divicious! And LazerShirts and interactive UV glow t-shirt company. Hard work and many volunteer gigs have led him to become a noticeable part of the Toledo, Ohio art scene, showing in numerous galleries and completing large public art murals.

Have you considered Grad School? THINK ABOUT IT!

Master of Education (MED)

Why not take some time to consider continuing your education this spring or summer with one of Tiffin University’s graduate programs. Earning a graduate degree will not only help you reach professional goals, but many careers are now requiring an advanced degree. Graduate students are often on the cutting edge of their industries, becoming pioneers in their fields. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the average worker with a master's degree will net an additional $10,000 or more per year than those with only a bachelor's degree. Working only twenty years after earning your master’s degree can bring in additional income of $200,000. The cost of graduate school tuition is obviously well worth the expense. We would love to have an opportunity to discuss our graduate program with you in detail. I also encourage you to complete the online application at http://www.tiffin.edu/apply/ grad/. The application will secure a seat for you in the program and put you on the road to success.

Tiffin Leadership Park The Leadership Seneca County class of 2014 presented their community service project to Tiffin City Council on Monday, February 3, 2014 and was approved by a unanimous 6-0 vote. Leadership Park will be located on the east side of the river, along the water front in an existing grassy area. This area will be developed with the intention for it to be used for Tiffin community events including events for the creative arts and community engagement events. The development of Leadership Park will give a warm welcome coming into the downtown area with beauty and art leading into an inviting historic area that individuals from all over the Country will pass in route to places like Heidelberg University, The Civil War Museum, or the events at the YMCA and Hedges Boyer park. Market Street is the gateway to the downtown area, and it is the hope of Leadership Seneca County Class of 2014 to kick off to the beautification and economic revitalization of our downtown. For more information please visit www.facebook.com/ LeadershipParkTiffin or email LeadershipParkTiffin@gmail.com The mission of Leadership Seneca County is "educating and inspiring individuals to be dynamic leaders and contributors in the workplace and the community".
