International Partnership Presentation

Cabrini University ESL candidates and Liceo de Cervantes LICEO

Barranquilla, Colombia

April 28, 2021


via ZOOM below


Since January, Cabrini faculty members Susan Jacques Pierson, PhD, and Natacha Bolufer-Laurentie, PhD, with Cabrini students Kevin Nerz, Polly Post, Winnie Doyle, Natalie Overton,  and Cristina Govea have been teaching English virtually to parents and teachers from the school in Colombia. This project has been implemented with Volunteer English Program (VEP) of Chester County and we have been joined by teachers Rachel Van Tassel of VEP, and Jenny and Valeria Robayo who are recent immigrants from Colombia.

During the presentation you will learn about our experiences and have opportunities to ask questions.

There may be opportunities to join our work in the future!

Video stating the mission of our partner school, so much like that of Cabrini:


Enseñamos a buscar la verdad como camino de libertad

Enseñamos solidaridad como compromiso de justicia

Cultivamos amistad como filosofía de vida

Educamos para el mundo global más
