In this time of globalization, Cleveland is looking for its strengths and for potential for development. One of our greatest strengths is our population of immigrants. Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences (MSASS) of Case Western Reserve University is helping to build cultural competency of social workers working in Cleveland’s diverse social environment. We are happy to announce that MSASS has added workshops and classes concerning Poland to its international curriculum this year.

Cleveland, OH—Take an educational holiday overseas in March 2012 during Spring Break and engage in cross-cultural studies of social policies and practices for health and human services. Several three-credit travel courses for Case Western Reserve University students are open to students at other colleges and universities and to working professionals in health and human services.

Cleveland Polsce

Monday, April 12th, 2010

Od soboty siedzę przy komputerze i śledzę wydarzenia w Polsce. Na szczęście ciągle pojawiają się nowe wiadomości, nowe zdjęcia, czyjeś reakcje, odczucia i przemyślenia. Szukam tych, które mówią o pojednaniu, o solidarności, o reakcjach współczucia i pomocy. Ktoś na przykład napisał, że Rosjanie nie zmienią już historii Katynia z 1940 roku ale mogą napisać nową o swojej solidarności z Polską 70 lat później. Zamieszczę adresy internetowe artykułów, które ostatnio czytałem. Chciałbym również zwrócić się do Was abyście przesłali do mnie myśli, słowa – to z czym chcielibyście się podzielić z innymi a ja będę umieszczał Wasze listy tutaj, pod tymi słowami…

Since Saturday I have been sitting at the computer and reading about the events in Poland. New information, new pictures, and more reactions, thoughts, and feelings about the tragic events appear quickly. I look for postings which speak of unity and solidarity and express sympathy. For example, it has been written that while Russia cannot change the history of Katyń in 1940, it is now able to join in Solidarity with Poland seventy years later. Below I have listed links to some of the articles I have read. Please also send me your thoughts on these events, so that we may share them with others and in the newsletter.
