Student Patty Chang, Julian Davlin, Rhonda Holmes and Heather King, Social Work:

With funding assistance from HSU’s College of Professional Studies and HSU Presidential Travel, students from the Department of Social Work were able to accept a personal invitation to attend and present at the inaugural California Higher Education Food Summit, Jan. 16-18, at UCSB. Students included BASW students Patty Chang and Julian Davlin, and MSW students Rhonda Holmes and Heather King.

The three-day summit, held under the umbrella of the broader UC Global Food Initiative (UCGFI), included workshops, speakers, and activities aimed to forge collaborations and conversations about food justice across the state’s college communities. HSU Social Work students, led by Professor Jen Maguire, presented a workshop entitled: Beyond ‘Poverty Pimping’ and ‘Hand-Outs’: A Case Study of Campus Food Systems Change Through Community Engagement. The workshop explored the engagement of community partners, and proposed informational and destigmatizing programs to support food security for students.
