The burgeoning relationship between Bryn Mawr College’s Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research (GSSWSR) and Fundación Tierra de Esperanza continued this summer as Assistant Professor Carolina Hausmann-Stabile, Julie Riese, M.S.S. ’18, and current student Elyse Tierney all spent time in Chile this summer working with the organization.
“This partnership has provided wonderful opportunities for our students to have a truly global experience,” says Hausmann-Stabile, who has been the leading force behind the collaboration.
A highlight of the summer was an International Research Meeting co-organized by the GSSWSR and Tierra de Esperanza which took place in Viña Del Mar, Chile, between June 18 and 21, 2018. The event included participants from Mexico, Paraguay, Colombia, Peru, Chile, and Argentina, and was coordinated by researchers from Chile, Spain, Portugal, and the U.S.

Founded in 1915, the GSSWSR has from its inception embraced scholarship, practice, and collaboration within a broad construction of social work and social welfare.
