Ms. Shibli brings more than 25 years of experience in social work to BSU. Working with elders, doing legislative advocacy, organizing conferences, community development, program planning, development and management work over the years has given her the skills needed for securing internships in our area. Ms. Shibli has been working at the School of Social Work as the field education specialist and coordinator for the past 13 years.
Ms. Shibli likes bringing people together, whether it is on a one on one basis, group or at the community level. This skill was developed from growing up in a family culture that always welcomed people. Creating environments for dialogue and discussion is one of her favorite ways of bringing groups together. Social justice related issues on a local and global level keeps her motivated to make a difference.
