Guilford-College-Process

“Every Campus a Refuge” is a flexible initiative. Your institution can adapt the basic goal of housing (for 90 days) and assisting in the resettlement of a refugee family to your campus capabilities. In short, your campus can do as much as it can.  This is possible because this goal is carried out in partnership with your local refugee resettlement agency. They are still responsible for the refugee family’s resettlement and will provide the necessary services for resettlement even while the family is on your campus.
Below, you will find information on how and what Guilford College is doing to carry out this initiative. We hope these will provide general tips and ideas to encourage your campus to become a refuge.
Your campus can do it!

EDUCATING OUR CAMPUS AND LOCAL COMMUNITY

Educating and reaching out to your campus and local community about the refugee crisis and the initiative is essential in ensuring awareness, involvement and commitment. Here’s how we did it at Guilford College.
