Identifying and Serving the Unique Needs of the Immigrant and Refugee Populations in the US and throughout the World (Virtual Panel)

Date: 
Thursday, September 17, 2020 - 14:00

CAL is bringing together key thought leaders to discuss the challenges educators, researchers and policy makers face of identifying and serving the immigrant and refugee populations within the United States and throughout the world.

Although the students from countries outside of the United States continue to experience ever increasing restrictions in entrance and access to the United States, the needs and demands continue and those serving the population require support and accurate information.

Additionally, the refugee and immigrant populations outside of the United States are experiencing equally dire restrictions and living conditions. Like their U.S. counterparts, world support organizations need accurate information and avenues of access to raise awareness and have a chance to address the needs of the population.
