A social work study abroad experience

3 Jan

Social work roles extend beyond national boundaries. Social work and social welfare are prominent institutional vehicles through which societies assure quality of life for their citizens. This blog is designed to chronicle the experiences of 3 MSW students and a professor through Ecuador. Our task is to gain a multi-level understanding of this beautiful country and its people.

So far, we have made the trek from the Capitol city of Quito, to our home away from home, Cuenca. We are traveling with other students from Speech Language Pathology and Occupational Therapy as well. The group has visited multiple historic sites, done cultural mapping activities,
enjoyed traditional meals and celebrated New Year’s Eve Ecuador style in our first few days here.

Students will be sharing their insights here, about their experiences in the community, in class, and in the agency visits. We hope that you enjoy sharing this with us.
