The Department of Counseling, Social Work and Leadership is committed to the promotion of cultural understanding and social justice. As a part of our commitment to these values, we take pride in the international partnerships that we provide to facilitate student learning.
In May of 2012, students and professors traveled together to South Africa as part of SWK 494 and EDU 594: Comparative Studies of South Africa. The students and faculty went to South Africa to visit schools and orphanages. They helped out in whatever capacity was required of them and helped to feed many of the children in the area. Dr. Elliott remarked, “We went to the university and did all of these things in the attempt to see the world from their perspective. We left changed because we came to be more of ourselves.”
