Social Work students travel to Germany

Six students from Temple University’s School of Social Work recently returned from a 10-day trip to Germany.

During their time abroad, the students visited a hospital in Leipzig to discuss health care policy issues with social work students and faculty from Germany, South Africa, Ukraine, Botswana and India.

The College of Public Health has a professional development agreement with FHE University of Applied Sciences Erfurt in Germany that allows Social Work students from Temple’s Main and Harrisburg campuses to participate in a semester- to year-long exchange program or a shorter summer trip.

This trip is led by Link Martin, MSW, CPH Assistant Dean of Entrepreneurship & Innovation, and Director of Temple University Harrisburg.

Says Martin about this year’s group of student travelers, “I received a lot of compliments on their attentiveness, good questions they asked, and general engagement with others at agencies and at presentations.”
