TitleUnderstanding Bi-National Nonprofits In the US-Mexican Border Region
Units2
Description

The proximity to the Mexican border provides a unique opportunity to expose and prepare students for how to work more effectively in an increasingly international environment. Students will work in groups of two to three, and with an associate from an assigned nonprofit that spans the Mexico and United States border to analyze the particular nature of that organization and the challenges it faces. This course will include two days and one night in Tijuana. In addition, each student must have a valid passport prior to enrolling in this course and be willing to travel to Mexico. While a command of the Spanish language is not required, supplementing reading materials will be provided to students that are in both English and Spanish. [NOTE:  Required reading will be in English.]
