Today the University of Houston is hosting The Resilient Soul, 2.0: welcoming our refugee neighbors.
Former Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees, and Migration, Anne Richard (2012-2017), will serve as keynote speaker on US Refugee Policy.
Additionally, the symposium will include two panels with an overview of the refugee resettlement process in Houston and a series of stories of refugees who have been in the city for some time.
Multilingual Programs joins efforts to continue working collaboratively to ensure that students and parents feel welcomed and receive the help needed when transitioning into the U.S. school system in order to enable students to engage quickly with the appropriate curricula and pursue academic success.
This is why Multilingual Programs and its team of program specialist and outreach workers strive to provide quality bilingual, English as a Second Language and dual language programs to our students.
Currently, we serve more than 70,000 English Language Learners, including 13,000 immigrants and 2,000 refugees who speak over 90 languages and represent more than 100 countries.
