Forced Migration Studies Program
The Forced Migration Studies Program (FMSP) in the Department of Sociology & Anthropology at Nazareth College provides a resource base for individuals and organizations interested in or working on topics related to forced migration and refugee outreach efforts. The program assists in:
- Facilitating connections with community organizations engaged in refugee relief efforts and advocacy for people from refugee backgrounds.
- Facilitating Rochester area inter-collegiate collaboration on refugee relief efforts and advocacy
- Providing reading sources, data, and connections with community partners, for college faculty interested in incorporating topics on forced migration in their classes
- Organizing presentations and colloquia on forced migration.
- Conducting orientation workshops for those planning to work or are already working with refugee communities
How to get involved:
- Students: Through off-campus internships, research opportunities, and service learning courses students have a variety of ways to become engaged with refugee communities.
- Faculty: Faculty may consider incorporating a service learning or civic engagement component into a course. Community-based research is also an opportunity to engage in meaningful scholarship relating to areas of forced migration.
