Program Description:





Immigration issues between the U.S. and Mexico are not just legal issues; they are cultural issues. BorderLinks is a bi-national non-profit organization in Tucson, Ariz., that leads educational delegations in the exploration of border issues. The organization prides itself on providing a 360-degree view of border and immigration issues. Delegations have opportunities to meet with multiple non-profits and service agencies dedicated to the needs of migrants as well as Border Patrol agents, artists, leaders of local native nations and many others. Each delegation works with BorderLinks to prepare an itinerary that meets its needs.

This course will investigate the cultural similarities and differences in mainstream U.S. and Mexican culture. The primary focus will be on border towns as cross-cultural experiences, given the primacy that immigration issues play in the everyday lives of those who live in these regions.
