Book Launch: Higher Education in the Era of Migration, Displacement and Internationalization

Join us virtually on March 25th as we speak with the authors of Higher Education in the Era of Migration, Displacement and Internalization. “This book examines how higher education institutions globally can improve to meet the needs of displaced people, refugees, migrants, and international students. Through students’ voices from different nations as well as global policy analysis, the book exemplifies how different higher education institutions are widening access pathways for atypical students.”
