SOC 495 Global to Local – Supporting Community-Based Refugee Programming

Are you a student who wants to grow your own awareness and understanding of refugee issues globally and locally?  Do you want to work on a project to raise awareness and understanding with others who may be less politically aware?

Soc Wf 495 includes a series of guest speakers who will discuss different topics focused on refugees from the global context, to interviewing asylum seekers, and local resettlement services and issues.   We will also partner with two grassroots agencies and support three of their initiatives.  Students therefore will choose an assignment option that fits with their schedule while also working together for a larger group project.   A side benefit of the course and group project may be yummy food reflective of different cultures.
