Many social work students show an interest in studying the impact of trauma and resiliency in the peace process. To better bring them this opportunity, the social work department has a study abroad program that goes to Colombia every 18 months. This year, we are scheduled to go May 19-29, 2020. Along with the service work, we will interact with local social work students.
Your Day of Giving gifts will allow a greater number of students to attend. The average cost for travel per student is $3,000 for 10 days of travel, lodging and other costs. For many social work students, they cannot attend because of finances. Your gift can give them a transformational experience and positively impact their education and life.
