The Welcome Campus Network amplifies the work of colleges and universities in welcoming and supporting newcomers seeking safety from across the globe. With additional support as of spring 2023 under the Supporting Higher Education in Refugee Resettlement (SHERR) program, the Welcome Campus Network is seeking to grow and deepen its impact. The SHERR program is funded by the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration.
What is the commitment upon joining the Network?
Joining the Welcome Campus Network means joining a community of colleges and universities and organizations working with campuses that are committed to welcoming newcomers. Members participate in meetings twice per month to share information and best practices; learn from national, state, and local officials, advocates, and practitioners on current opportunities, trends, and events; participate in communities of practice; and build common solidarity and community. Through SHERR, Welcome Campus Network members can expect to benefit from tools, training, and other resources.
