Coupling with the other sessions on displaced populations, this session will showcase one or more institutional case studies on response to the multiple refugee and displacement crises affecting millions of individuals around the globe. Specifically, in regard to prospective students, we'll provide insight into efforts already underway and possible directions to explore in the future with the goal of better supporting displaced persons at our institutions as well as within our communities. We'll address the most important needs of individuals from this background as well as the most efficient and effective ways of supporting these students.
Depending on gauged interest and approval of other sessions, we/I can also tailor this specifically to Indiana University's response as a single case study and explore how Indiana as a state is organizing support for refugee and asylee students in a broader community response.

Institutional Response to Displaced Persons and Regions in Crisis
With ongoing crises in multiple areas of the world, how can US institutions provide support to asylee and refugee students who arrive in the US? We'll present multiple cases of US institutions that have begun or continue work to support this population of students. During the session, we'll describe what has been done as well as our experience regarding what has worked and not worked for our context.
