Faculty, staff and students interested in refugee issues are invited to attend the Idaho Conference on Refugees scheduled for Feb. 4-5 at Boise State University, and can apply for partial scholarships to reduce the cost from $100 to $50, thanks to Provost Tony Roark. Twenty scholarships for faculty/staff are available.

Idaho’s Annual Conference on Refugees spans two days and serves many purposes: rejuvenation, learning, sharing and connecting. It has continued to grow, reaching new stakeholders in the community and providing additional opportunities for improved refugee resettlement. The conference includes workshops, plenaries, speakers and panels, and is an excellent opportunity to learn best practices, network with others working or volunteering in resettlement, and get updates on resettlement in the U.S. and abroad.
