The mission of the Association for Childhood Education International (ACEI) is to promote the inherent rights, education, and well-being of all children world-wide. The University of Guam’s ACEI has had many accomplishments over the years. It will continue to renew its commitment to the ideals of the Association – ideals based upon a dream that all children will, someday, live and play in harmony and grow up having the care and education they need and deserve to fulfill their own dreams for the future.

Snapshots of Michael Jackson Look Alike Dance Contest

In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., ACEI held its annual island-wide MLK poster contest, as well as a Michael Jackson Look Alike Dance Contest co-sponsored by the UOG Student Government Association.

Pictured below are snapshots from the Michael Jackson Look Alike Dance Contest. Congratulations to all the participants! They will each receive a prize!

Remembering the Dream Poster Contest Winners on Display in RFK Library

Remembering the Dream Poster Contest Winners on Display in Library

The UOG Library lobby hosts Dr. Marilyn Jackson's outstanding exhibit of "Remembering the Dream" Poster Contest winners, and Dr. Jackson's own display of memorabilia examining the life and work of the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the late Coretta Scott King. Included are special tributes to the late Rosa Parks, the late Michael Jackson, and President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama. The display has multiple tie-ins to many course curricula and we hope that many University of Guam students and professors make time to peruse it. The exhibit will remain up through February.
