The Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) Consortium in Mexico operates the Social Work in a Latin American Context program, which takes place in Cuernavaca each spring. Read on to find out about the program, benefits, and membership.
The consortium was formed with the goal of providing a cross-cultural and academic study abroad opportunity for BSW students that also met requirements set forth by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). The program is rooted in:
- Social justice and transformational learning
- Experiential pedagogy
- Global and intercultural social work/social welfare context immersion
- Preparing culturally competent professionals to serve diverse populations
The program’s inaugural semester was in 2003. The program won CSWE’s Global Commission “Partners in International Social Work Education Award” in 2006, and “Best Practices in International Education International Exchange Award” from the Student Affairs Professionals in Higher Education (NASPA) in 2014.
