Problems without Passports Info Session: Medellín, Colombia 2015

INFORMATION SESSION:  Tuesday, 9 December 2015, 1pm, THH 309J
http://dornsife.usc.edu/colombia-local-context-and-international-relations/

This Problems without Passports program takes intrepid students to Medellín, Colombia to experience the transformation that the city has undergone as the years of strife and conflict were resolved.  Students will study in the living urban laboratory that was named Innovative City of the Year in 2013.  The Wall Street Journal, Citi, and the Urban Land Institute chose Medellín, ahead of New York and Tel Aviv, based on its economy, urban development, culture, and livability as the most innovative city in the world.  The city, previously known for crime and drug trade, shines as a safe and innovative place to live, study, and do business.  It is a vibrant metropolis that is connected by a system of metros, aerial cable cars (metrocable), buses, taxis that make getting around easy and economical.

Medellín is situated in the Andes mountains and offers a temperate climate year-round that makes it “The City of Eternal Spring.”  It is home to the Escuela de Adminstración y Finanazas e Instituto Tecnológico (EAFIT) where the University of Southern California offers this unique summer program with the theme of Conflict and resolution.  We offer two courses that examine how Medellín resolved its social conflict and evolved into a community that celebrates its prominence as the second largest city and economy in Colombia.

Business, educational sectors, and the government have unified to physically unite the social strata of the city.  There are covered escalators to bring the poorest citizens from the outskirts of the city into the city center so that they may integrate themselves into the labor force and benefit from the burgeoning economy.  Business and government have collaborated to create cultural spaces, such as the Modern Art Museum and the Museum of Remembrance, that celebrate the arts and recall the conflict that transformed Medellín.

The universities of the city strive to be welcoming spaces that reflect the importance of education for all, shared social responsibility, and respect the environment in the process.  EAFIT leads the pack in this area.  The Medellín campus is in the city center, an American-style college campus filled with local flora and fauna, where future leaders study and socialize.
