A round table of presenters will include testimonies from refugees, perspectives from resettlement staff (local & overseas), academia, and student activists. In addition to providing a forum for students, faculty/staff, and community members to network and extend their understanding of these complex issues, students will learn about opportunities to engage in humanitarian activism.
