During January, the Social Work Department,

in partnership with the Kurdish Human Rights

Watch Association, hosted four officials

from northern Iraq who came to learn about

the social service system in the United

States. The officials spent time in the

classroom and visited various social

service organizations and agencies. In a

closing ceremony last Friday at the

Arlington Campus, they were treated to a

farewell lunch and received CEU certificates.

Above, Shelan M. Shareef discusses what the

group members learned from their visit and

how they intend to use the resources they

gathered while in the United States.
