Please join us as Master's Students from the Higher Education and Student Affairs Administration Program (HESAA) at Buffalo State discuss and reflect on a three-week study abroad course that they completed in January, 2017. HESAA students toured German universities in five cities as well as several resettlement agencies and communities. Their base was Dortmund—Sister City of Buffalo, New York. North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW), which includes Dortmund, received nearly 150,000 refugees in 2015. Dortmund, approximately the same size as Buffalo, has one of the largest refugee concentrations in the world. We will discuss promising practices and exchange ideas from individuals involved in resettlement efforts in Western New York.
