The Presidents' Alliance on Higher Education and Immigration


Washington, DC

Join the Presidents' Alliance at the 2024 Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA) Annual Conference for a session entitled "Doing the Right Thing: Enrolling Refugees in Higher Education".

In a world marked by increasing displacement and humanitarian crises involving refugees, higher education has emerged as a powerful tool for advancing the principles of equity, diversity, and social justice. This session seeks to address the pressing challenges faced by U.S. universities in enrolling refugee students and underscores the moral and societal importance of their inclusion in higher education. The panel will feature a refugee student currently enrolled at Georgetown University.
Student Speakers: Asadullah Azimi & Raashid Amiri

The Presidents' Alliance will also be presenting a session on February 20th: Building Sustainable Pathways for Refugee Access to Higher Education, at the AIEA Annual Conference. More information about that session is available here
