LETI selected as 2021 IAS Outstanding Community Partner

0

The IAS Outstanding Community Partner award honors the extraordinary contributions of partner organizations. Recipients advance the IAS values of equity, inclusion, and social justice and link student learning and faculty scholarship to real-life experiences that positively impact our region and world.

In 2021, we are pleased to recognize Latino Educational Training Institute (LETI) as our Outstanding Community Partner! LETI is dedicated to strengthening relationships between Latinos and the wider Lynnwood community through an array of services and events. They have been a UW Bothell partner for several years and have collaborated with IAS faculty members Jin-Kyu Jung and Raissa DeSmet on several course projects.

LETI was nominated by Jung, who has worked with LETI on a variety of urban research topics such as fresh food availability in South Lynnwood. Says Jung, “ Among various community organizations, cities, and centers I have partnered with, I am deeply touched by their devotion, sincere care, and commitment and attentiveness for the community, as well as for my students and their learnings.”
