University signs up to national initiative looking to provide safe haven for refugees

University of Gloucestershire has reaffirmed its commitment to providing a safe and supportive community for refugees by pledging its support for the University of Sanctuary initiative.

A national network of university staff, academics and students, the initiative celebrates the good practice of universities in creating a culture of welcome within their own institutions and the wider community through providing forced migrants with equal access to education, supporting local refugee communities, and teaching on issues around forced migration across a range of subject areas.

The University has signed up to the initiative as a Supporting Organisation and will now look to demonstrate the various aspects of its work in supporting refugees within its own academic and student community, and community groups and organisations by acquiring University of Sanctuary accreditation.
