Event Materials

This event is now archived and we are pleased to provide the following event media and assets, along with the original event overview.

This webinar draws from the recent publication Refugees and higher education: Trans-national perspectives on access, equity, and internationalization to consider the policies, practices, and experiences associated with the higher education of displaced students. The focus is not only on refugee education as an issue of access and equity, but also on this phenomenon as seen through the lens of internationalization. What competencies are called for among university faculty and staff welcoming refugee-background students to their institutional contexts? How might “distance learning” be considered anew?

These challenges and opportunities for institutional growth will be closely considered by this group of authors focused on Australia, Ethiopia, Germany, Venezuela, and the United States. They address sub-topics ranging from the intersection of national equity policy and the education of displaced students to the role of private providers. These perspectives will provide key insights for faculty and staff at higher education institutions that currently enroll asylees or refugees, as well as those that may do so in the future.
