Education and the COVID-19 Pandemic in Peru

In summer 2020, Amber Stanford (C’21) conducted virtual research at the University of Antonio Ruiz de Montoya (La Ruiz) in Lima, Peru, through the Education and Social Justice Fellowship, a joint project of the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and the Center for Social Justice Research, Teaching and Service at Georgetown University. Her research explored how the COVID-19 pandemic impacts students, faculty, staff, and the larger community. Stanford aimed to better understand how La Ruiz is responding to this global health crisis and what effects those choices are having on the university and its community.
