Abstract

An influx of North American retirees has formed two separate groups within Cuenca, Ecuador. The goal of our project, sponsored by the Department of External Relations, was to develop a plan to facilitate successful integration. We achieved the goal in three stages: understanding perspectives from residents, analyzing data collected, and using trends to develop supplemental materials. Based on data, we planned to reach out to the group of isolated retirees through opportunities for community engagement.
