International Service Learning In Chiapas, Mexico

Students in Julie Whitaker's Bridging Borders course spent the first two weeks of January 2014 in the charming colonial city of San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico. Chiapas is the southernmost state in Mexico. It is also the most impoverished and most highly indigenous state of Mexico. Students collaborated with indigenous university students on a project in Zinacantan, a nearby Mayan village.
