Did you know that only 7% of refugees worldwide are able to access higher education?

Are you interested in learning more about UNHCR’s 15% by 2030 Global Pledge to expand refugee access and success in higher education and finding out what local action is already happening on campus to empower refugees?

Do you want to be involved in discussing how McGill can improve its support refugees on campus?

Then join the event Empowering Refugees @ McGill on Tuesday, March 26 from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM.

  • Manal Stulgaitis, UNHCR
