Science in Exile

UAlberta welcomed UAlberta’s refugee scholars and students at a reception in March 2019, followed by a screening of the film “Science in Exile” and a discussion panel where researchers at UAlberta, through our collaboration with the Institute of International Education’s Scholar Rescue Fund, shared their personal perspectives and experiences. The event provided an opportunity to celebrate the awarding of the IIE Beacon Award to UAlberta in 2018 and to reaffirm our commitment to working for the global good, in support of the UN Sustainable Development Goal #4 (quality education).
