Wilfrid Laurier University (WLU) and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) are pleased to host an international conference titled Equipping Student Leaders as Partners for Sustainable Humanitarian Action, convened by International Students Overcoming War. The conference aims to bring together staff of higher education institutions, researchers, students, higher education networks, student organisations, and representatives of multilateral organisations. Through the conference we will collectively build a deeper understanding of the role of higher education institutions in engaging with response to humanitarian crises, enhance student-led action and research, and build a framework for partnership in higher education to engage more deeply across the humanitarian-development nexus.
