Mobilizing University Resources for Welcome: How to Make Your Campus a Resettlement Campus – Oct 11, Nov 15, Dec 6

Posted by Refugee Welcom Collective on October 11, 2022

Mobilizing higher education institutional resources is an innovative way to both welcome refugees and provide valuable learning experiences for students.

Join Every Campus A Refuge (ECAR) to explore the ins and outs of establishing a “Resettlement Campus” – i.e. a higher education institution that provides refugees with temporary housing and community integration support through transformative curricular and co-curricular efforts.  

Participants will gain understanding about refugee resettlement and ECAR, why college and university campuses are uniquely positioned to support refugee integration, and how to effectively mobilize resources to do so. Participants will be equipped to leverage their campus and community resources to provide culturally responsive integration support while prioritizing the agency and dignity of refugees. 

Training Dates: October 11th, November 15th, and December 6th from 1 PM to 2:30 PM ET. 

The minimum number of registrants for each training is 10 and the maximum is 30.
