Working towards becoming a University of Sanctuary - the story so far

Location: Norcroft Centre

Date and Time:
Fri 22 Apr 2016, 12:00 - 13:00

Duration: 1 hour

The University of Sanctuary Working Group will be hosting a lunchtime event to celebrate what has already been achieved at the University of Bradford in working towards becoming a University of Sanctuary.

As part of the University of Bradford’s big Diversity Festival, we are hosting a lunchtime event both to celebrate the University’s achievements so far and to encourage staff and students to get involved in helping us become a University of Sanctuary.

Our aim is to play our role in helping the City of Sanctuary Movement build a culture of hospitality and welcome for asylum seekers and refugees seeking sanctuary from war and persecution.

Come along and listen to speakers including:

Professor Paul Rogers (Peace Studies), Will Sutcliffe (Chair of Bradford City of Sanctuary) & Furaha Mussanzi (refugee and former student), Dr Mel Cooper (Faculty of Health Studies), Samayya Afzal (UBU), Tesfalem H. Yemane (CARA academic), Dr William Mitchell (Director of International Development).

University staff and students can hear why and how to get involved in this rewarding project. Guests are welcome to come along and listen to what we've achieved so far and what we’re working towards.

The event will be chaired by Kate Karban from the Faculty of Social Sciences.
