Refugee and Newcomer Program

SFU leads a coordinated and multi-pronged response to refugee-related issues. SFU engages with refugee communities in a variety of ways, including research, scholarships and support services for refugee students and community engagement. Over the last 6 years, we have partnered with over 30 local, national and international stakeholders and have engaged with over 1700 people in 26 community events. 

SFU International's Refugee and Newcomer Program (RNP) coordinates the university's refugee and newcomer-related engagement.  For more information, please visit the Refugee and Newcomer Programs website.

The International Services for Students (ISS) office provides support and services for all students seeking information regarding a variety of international learning opportunities. For more information, please visit the International Services for Students website.

SFU's commitment to academic freedom is global. One of the ways we uphold this commitment is through our membership to Scholars at Risk. The Scholars at Risk (SAR) mission is to protect scholars and promote academic freedom. Through SAR, SFU offers temporary academic positions to scholars facing grave threats such as imprisonment or being silenced in their home countries.
