Presidents' Alliance

Location:

New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, LA

Despite a record-breaking 108M people displaced in 2022, less than 1% of refugees are resettled annually, and only 7% of refugees have access to higher education worldwide. Join us to discuss new, sustainable pathways to education and safety for refugees, which in turn enrich campus ecosystems. Join the President's Alliance for a session on "Building Sustainable Pathways for Refugee Access to Higher Education" at 4 pm ET on Thursday, May 30th, 2024.

This session will outline the different ways that institutions can engage with and welcome students with refugee backgrounds, providing resources to better understand and engage this often underrepresented population. Institution leaders’ understanding of the opportunities and challenges that refugees face will be key to how institutions view their roles in addressing the global refugee crisis.
