Refugee Simulation Event

Event Detail
Date: Friday, January 19th
Time: 9:00 am

The Social Justice Initiative is hosting a Refugee Simulation as part of MLK Week. From 9 a.m. to noon in the Sports Center arena, participants will go through a 10-module simulation of a family experiencing war-like conditions, making the decision to leave their home country for an industrialized country nearby, and trying to tackle the challenges of living in that country. Afterward, there will be a 1-hour debrief over lunch in Smith Dining Hall. Because of the time frame and the experiential learning aspects, we encourage faculty to make this part of their 5th block curriculum. Contact HGanzel by Thursday at noon to RSVP.
