Blum Center Director Richard Matthew has developed a field study site in La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico. Through the UCI Blum Center for Poverty Alleviation and the School of Social Ecology, students from all majors are invited to enroll in an immersive field study program conducted at the partner site in La Paz, Mexico, where students will work with community-based organizations on local projects in the areas of urban development, environmental restoration and management, and public health.

The program offers 12 units of credit and allows the students to spend about five weeks preparing for field study while on campus at UCI, and about five weeks at the site in La Paz, Mexico. Students will have the opportunity to live in a secure field camp and assist UC faculty conducting research related to sustainable development, human development, and community development.
