Join Fielding Graduate University as we kick off our 50th Anniversary celebrations this January!

On Jan. 14, Fielding, in conjunction with Premier Sponsor the Santa Barbara Independent, will host the Film Premiere: The Voices of Fielding, an exclusive cinematic journey into the heart of education. The event will be from 2:30 p.m.-4 p.m. PT at the Riviera Theatre in Santa Barbara.

The Voices of Fielding features graduates from the Navajo Nation, representatives from the Black Student Association, and a broad cross-section of students and alums from all schools at Fielding. It includes local Santa Barbara leaders and alums, such as U.S. Representative Salud Carbajal and California State University Channel Islands President Richard Yao, Ph.D.

The film premiere will be followed by a brief discussion with the film’s director, Jean-Pierre Isbouts, D. Litt., and Fielding Graduate University President Katrina S. Rogers, Ph.D. A reception featuring Carr Vineyards & Winery wines and celebrating Fielding’s 50th Anniversary will conclude the event.

Lois Mahalia, a Guyana-born American singer-songwriter and recording artist, will also perform an original song from her new album, “Chasing the Sun.” For more information about Lois, visit www.loismahalia.com.

This event will also unveil the Transformative Power of Learning: 50 Years of Lifelong Learning at Fielding Graduate University, published through Fielding University Press. The monograph offers a rich tapestry of narratives and range of perspectives that reflect the diverse and profound journeys of Fielding’s alums, faculty and students.

Marking half a century of educational innovation, The Transformative Power of Learning is not just a retrospective account but a forward-looking exploration of the role of education in personal and societal evolution. This work invites readers into the heart of Fielding’s philosophy, where individual stories of growth and discovery illuminate the broader narrative of transformative education’s impact on lives and communities.

The event is free and open to the Fielding community and public.
