A delegation of undergraduate and graduate students from the Latino Student Social Work Association accompanied by its two faculty advisors, Drs. David Engstrom and Maria Lusia Zuniga visited three social service agencies and met with students at the Escuela de Trabajo Social in Tijuiana, Mexico on November 15, 2013.
The visited agencies were:
- Fundacion Proteccion a la Ninez (child welfare)
- Instituto de la Mujer (domestic violence)
- Casa del Migrante Scalabrini (migrant shelter)
The LSSWA students had an enriching dialog with the students from the social work program in Tijuana and have started a planning group for future bi-national collaboration.
This is the first large-scale visit to Tijuana after the CSU Chancellor’s Office revised its travel policy for Tijuana. The School of Social Work plans to organize another trip for the Spring Semester 2014. Please contact Dr. David Engstrom for more information about upcoming trips.
