Global Transmigration Certificate Program hosting spring event April 16

Our Global Transmigration Certificate Program is hosting a spring event on April 16, 2013, from noon-2 p.m., in the School of Social Work auditorium. The public is welcome to attend.

During the event, students who are completing the Global Transmigration Certificate will present their final projects to the Advisory Committee. The Committee will then ask questions of the students.

“We also wanted to use the opportunity to highlight issues of immigration,” said Josh Hinson, certificate program director. Deborah Weissman from the Law School will talk about comprehensive immigration reform.

The agenda includes:
12-12:30 – Deborah Weissman, UNC Law School, on “The State of U.S. Immigration Reform”
12:30-1:20 – Student presentations (20 minutes each, Q&A)

  • “Developing a social support group for socially isolated Latinas in Durham,” Becky Kyle
  • “Developing a program for the Rotary Peace Scholars to help students from conflict and post-conflict countries cope with their own experiences of trauma,” Jessica Butcher

1:20-1:30 – Update on the Certificate and plans for fall event
1:30-2 – Refreshments
