University Engagement Toolkit: How Campuses are Helping Refugees


Share this post!

The refugee crisis is not just a Syrian problem, nor a Middle Eastern problem, or a European or an African problem. It is a global challenge of historic proportions and dimensions, and it tests our values, our self confidence, and our very humanity. We have to do all that we can to respond effectively, and the most effective response of all, my friends, involves the pursuit of peace. -- Secretary John Kerry, January 2016

As we face the largest refugee crisis in history, NGOs, civil society, and governments face massive challenges to secure a prosperous future for those forced to flee their homes. At the forefront of these efforts is the State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM), which eases suffering and works to resolve the plight of persecuted and uprooted people around the world. PRM does this on behalf of the American people by working through multilateral systems to build global partnerships, promoting best practices in humanitarian response, and ensuring that U.S. foreign and national security policies respect humanitarian principles.

PRM released their University Engagement Toolkit to connect students with opportunities to make a difference. Download it now and get to work!
