Through USD’s Karen and Tom Mulvaney Center for Community, Awareness and Social Action (CASA), the Department of Learning and Teaching (DLT) arranges two one-day trips to Tijuana and San Diego. The focus of these trips is to join the border community to better understand the unique political, economic and cultural reality of this region. The impact of U.S. immigration policy is specifically highlighted through engagement with men, woman and children who are directly affected by it on both sides of the border. Students will learn from the work of Community Partners such as Border Angels, Fundación GAIA and the Scouts of Tijuana who have experienced the opportunities and challenges of life along “the fence.” Students will have opportunities to think about their role as a teacher in meeting the needs of students whose lives have been impacted by these disruptions. The CASA/DLT trips are offered once a semester. DLT students must sign up for both trips to meet part of the international requirement. Each trip includes an orientation session before the trip and a reflection session after the trip, which will be held at USD. A fee (as well as a passport copy for the Tijuana trip) must be submitted for registration. | COST: $40 EACH ($80 TOTAL)
