2017 Refugee Provider Conference: Best Practices for Post-Resettlement Adjustment
About the Conference
When : March 23-24 (optional Refugee Simulation on March 25)
Social justice now occupies center stage as the world reaches global consciousness through rapid globalization. This conference highlights some of the many issues that we face both locally and internationally towards a socially just world, a world where the worth of each person is recognized and valued irrespective of ethnicity/national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, socio-economic background, physical abilities, religion and other differences without any prejudice. Social justice in its broadest sense is inclusive of human rights, philosophical orientations, access to resources and equal opportunity for ALL.
Another purpose of this conference is to encourage and promote diversity throughout the University and community. Diversity is defined as a reality created by individuals and groups from a broad spectrum of demographic and philosophical differences. These include ethnicity/national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, socio-economic background, physical abilities, religion and other differences that create an inclusive environment. WTAMU realizes a diverse community of learners enriches the educational experience and opportunities of all its members. As such, WTAMU is committed to the goal of promoting mutual respect, understanding and appreciation of the uniqueness of all people.
