‘Making it’ in the US: education and employment for Afghan refugees
March 3, 2022
With war and displacement atop most news agendas right now, higher education has a huge part to play in the US’ national response
When the United States pulled out of Afghanistan this past summer, tens of thousands of refugees fled ahead of the Taliban. Many of them ended up in the US, where they will try to build new lives in a new country. It’s our responsibility as a nation to provide education and job training to give these refugees the opportunity to find long-term success here. Higher education must play a significant role in this national response.
