Summer 2019: Rajagiri College (India) Students and Faculty Will Visit the School of Social Work July


The Rajagiri College of Social Sciences in Kochi, India and the UMB School of Social Work have partnered for over a decade in a number of ways. Groups of SSW students live on the Rajagiri campus and complete field placements and coursework each year; other SSW students have visited Rajagiri and participated in conferences. For the past several years, we have also been able to reciprocate Rajagiri’s generous hospitality by hosting a summer visit by a group from Rajagiri. This year’s Rajagiri College visitors will be here July 1-12; they include four MSW students and a faculty member, Father Shinto. The group will participate in SW classes, visit field agencies, and tour local cultural and social services sites. Dr. Shinto will also be delivering a lecture, open to the campus, on July 10th (more details to come). If you’d like to support this visit: • We welcome tax-deductible donations to help support the group’s expenses. Please mail your check to Dr. Caroline Long Burry at Box 154, SSW, University of Maryland, 525 W. Redwood Street, Baltimore, MD 21201. Tax-deductible donations can be given by check only, made out to “UMBF/SSW/International Study Program-India.” • If you would be able to provide tickets to an event or activity, such as a museum, Orioles game, etc., please email Katie Golden

If you have questions, please contact Dr. Burry at or Katie Golden
