Casa de la Mateada is a different kind of study abroad experience. It offers a rare and exciting opportunity for students to experience praxis, community living, critical analysis and reflection, and spiritual formation in the dynamic city of Córdoba, Argentina. Offered in partnership between Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles (LMU) and the Universidad Católica de Córdoba (UCC), this program reflects and embodies the Jesuit values at the heart of these two universities. Especially important is the Ignatian ideal of a “well-educated solidarity,” a concept students in the program engage on many different levels--from the types of courses offered, to the intimate setting in which they are housed, and to the direct way they engage the Argentine communities with whom they work. Students spend a semester immersing themselves in the rich and complex cultural, social, political and historical realities of Argentina, learning to accompany those living on the margins, while also being challenged to grow and develop as persons for others.
