Tufts Begins Relationship with Santa Anita la Union

Nine Tufts first year students and a junior designed their own study trip to Guatemala that enabled them to meet with senior officials and set the basis for ongoing work with a coffee cooperative. The group, one of four organized this summer under the Tisch Active Citizen Summer International program at Tisch College, spent five weeks in the Central American country. They traveled as part of the Building Understanding through International Learning and Development (BUILD) program, sponsored by the Institute for Global Leadership at Tufts.
