World Refugee Day @ UC

Student Equity and Participation invites you to join us for a special morning tea event to mark World Refugee Day.

World Refugee Day provides the UC community with an opportunity to demonstrate our support and to recognise the strength, resilience, and courage of those with refugee backgrounds, both locally and around the globe. 

Students of refugee and asylum seeker backgrounds are an underrepresented group in higher education with only 5% having access to higher education. This figure is well below the global average of higher education enrolment among non-refugees, which stands at 39%. The diversity, knowledge, and educational aspiration developed through students’ life experiences must be celebrated and the rich contribution made to our institution and to society recognised. 

To mark the day, several UC students with refugee backgrounds will share their success stories with us. We will also hear from UC staff and Companion House. Full program with speaker’s details and activities on the day to be confirmed soon.
