Students in the Jesuit Commons: Higher Education at the Margins refugee aid program in Malawi

U M A N R I G H TS AC T I V I ST Adeeb Yousif endured torture and assassination attempts before fleeing his native Sudan and receiving asylum in the United States. But instead of turning his back on his past and nestling into the security of his new residence, the PhD student at George Mason University in Virginia remains an advocate for peace. He’s co-founded the Darfur Reconciliation and Development Organization and strives to improve the lives of those who remain in his homeland. “I strongly believe that education is the key for solving all Sudan’s problems. It is also the main entrance to respect, acceptance, harmonious coexistence, sustainable peace and reconciliation between all people, and stability and development.” His beliefs are shared by many U.S. university faculty and students, who see education as the gateway to bettering life for refugees around the world. There are now more than 15 million refugees and 27 million internally displaced people, according to the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). Through access to education, “people feel like the life that was taken away now has been given back to them,” says Father Charles Currie, president of the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities. That group established the program Jesuit Commons: Higher Education at the Margins (JC:HEM), through which a group of Jesuit colleges and universities is providing online higher education to refugee camp residents in Kenya and Malawi, as well as urban refugees in Aleppo, Syria, and Amman, Jordan. Offering educational opportunities “makes a difference in the climate of the camps,” says Marie Friedemann, associate dean of the College for Professional Studies at Regis University in Denver. “We believe students’ lives are being transformed.”
