UNI(di)versity project webinar

The European University Association (EUA) is pleased to present a webinar on the social responsibility of universities in the era of migration.

This webinar will present the outcomes of the UNI(di)versity project and showcase the crucial role played by higher education institutions in fostering the social inclusion of migrants and cultural diversity. Held shortly before International Migrants Day (18 December), this event aims to engage in the global conversation about migration and encourage key stakeholders in the field to further support the inclusion of migrants in higher education by leveraging the project’s results after its conclusion.

Registrations are open until 16 December. Participation is free of charge and open to all EUA members as well as anyone with an interest in the inclusion of migrants with a refugee(-like) background in higher education.
