Diya Abdo Answers Every Campus a Refuge Questions


Associate Professor Diya Abdo did a Q&A about Every Campus a Refuge with The Daily Tar Heel, the student newspaper of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Diya, chair of the Department of English and Creative Writing, is the founder of the Every Campus a Refuge campaign, which urges every college and university to take in a Syrian refugee family. The campaign also is mentioned in an Inside Higher Ed article about how higher education is responding to the Syrian refugee crisis.

Guilford has pledged to identify and offer appropriate on-campus housing for a refugee family when the need arises from community partners.
