Abstract

This article presents the results of an academic training experience in Community Psychology that has been ongoing since 2013 at a Chilean private university located in the city of Santiago. This ongoing experience was implemented through an institutional agreement with the Independencia municipality (urban area of Santiago) and has focused on the increasingly large migrant population present in this district. The experience is described considering the institutional framework made possible by the learning and service policy of the university, the educational approach adopted by the teaching team, and the assessment of all the local actors involved. This proposal is described through the documentary review and analysis of several written sources, 8 individual interviews with community members and municipality workers, 2 focus groups with students, and 14 surveys administered to teachers and students. Purposive sampling was used. The information is analyzed qualitatively using thematic analysis. Results describe the development of the training project within an institutional framework defined through a public policy that takes advantage of the migration context to implement interventions at a local level, thus responding to the social demands derived from the phenomenon.
