Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities: Department of the Natural and Built Environment
This Hallam Guild group aims to champion issues around migration and migrant communities within the University. It will celebrate the contributions of international, migrant and displaced academics, researchers, students and professional staff within the Hallam community. It will also highlight the position of the University as an active participant within a global academic community. It will seek to grow the University’s stature in this role through engagement with and support for vulnerable and displaced scholars at Hallam and worldwide. Additionally, It will seek to develop resources and networks both internally and externally, to support new applied research and collaboration around themes of migration and refuge in Sheffield and globally.
The first major outcome of the group will be engagement of the University with Sheffield Refugee Week in June. The group is scheduled to run until the end of the 2019/20 academic year.
