University Alliance for Refugees & At-Risk Migrants

University Alliance for Refugees and At-Risk Migrants Launches at Rutgers University

Based on the longstanding ideal that universities can offer legal pathways to work and study for displaced and threatened students and scholars, the University Alliance for Refugees and At-Risk Migrants (UARRM) launched on July 23rd at a daylong symposium hosted by the Rutgers Global and Rutgers Graduate School, Newark (GSN). UARRM is centered on providing higher education opportunities and vocational training for refugees and at-risk migrants, and engaging with the forthcoming Global Compacts for Migration and Refugees.

UARRM was spearheaded by GSN with the leadership of 11 Steering Committee members. Rutgers University is among the most generous and consistent partners of IIE Scholar Rescue Fund (IIE-SRF). To date, the university has hosted and co-funded eight IIE-SRF fellows from six countries. Read more.
