Ian Cook, PhD Alumnus, and Prem Kumar Rajaram are launching their edited book, Opening Up the University

April 22, 2022

The book and the launch focuses on university access for students who have experienced displacement, what the responses of universities to displaced learners can teach us about the boundaries of academic institutions, and how struggles over access for these students may lead to new openings. The question of access to higher education for displaced individuals is placed in a wider context: We need to understand access as part of a wider drive towards equity, which entails meaningful inclusion, representation and participation in classrooms, at decision-making levels within institutions and society at large.
