Every Campus A Refuge
Every Campus a Refuge (ECAR) at Wake Forest is part of the national ECAR network. ECAR welcomes refugees by providing free temporary housing.
ECAR at Wake Forest partners with World Relief, the local resettlement agency, and other local
organizations to select participants, organize community events, and support \ families during their time at Wake and after they move into their permanent home. Through a deep, meaningful engagement with ECAR participants, students learn about communicating and listening across differences. The ECAR program provides opportunities for engaged pedagogy: students learn about the political, social, economic, cultural issues related to resettlement in North Carolina, including public policies and services related to health care, food security, education, housing, employment, and transportation. .
