Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

From 19-22 June, IIE’s Scholar Rescue Fund will be participating in the Global Challenges and Opportunities Facing Children, Youth and Families conference at Wheelock College in Boston as part of its 125th anniversary celebration. Addressing three interwoven strands of importance to the global community: education, health, and human rights, the conference will feature advocates, educators, political leaders, and the heads of non-profits and NGOs from around the world both as speakers and attendees.

Five IIE-SRF scholars and alumni will be presenting papers on different panels, including: HIV/AIDS and their Impacts around the World; Violence and Mental Health; Education and Human Rights; and Prostitution, Trafficking and Human Rights. 

A key event at the conference will be the IIE-SRF University and College Partnerships breakfast on Friday, June 21. IIE-SRF Executive Director Jim Miller will moderate a panel discussion about the role and value of the program and the impact that participation from academic and donor communities has on human rights, scholarship and families. IIE-SRF alumni from Iran, Iraq and Kyrgyzstan will be participating in the panel alongside James McCarthy, president of longtime IIE-SRF host partner Suffolk University.

The IIE-SRF scholars’ participation in this event was made possible by the Hite Foundation Chair for Communications of the IIE Scholar Rescue Fund.
