On April 18th, seven TBI interns presented research at the USD Undergraduate Research Conference held in the University Center forums.

Interns Brooke Schiefelbein, Yajaira Hernandez-Trejo, Leticia Corona, and Maritza Rodriguez-Diaz presented their combined work on “Water Use & Policy Options in the California/Baja California Region.” Yajaira Hernandez-Trejo also presented independently on her project, “The Impact of Citizenship Forming Democracy in Latin America.” Nathalie Gomez showcased her involvement in TBI’s Justice in Mexico Project (JMP) as both a regular contributor to JMP’s blog and Violence and Victims Monitor. Sarah Serrano presented on her experience working with cross-cultural understanding events and outreach, while Kalea Wiseman featured her research and presentation on “Latin American Democracy.” Caitlyn Benjamin covered "Peace and Conflict Resolution Implementations in Africa," and Angelita Delgado, Kalea Wiseman, and Maritza Rodriguez-Diaz rounded out the group with their presentation on "Undocumented Students in the City of Escondido."
