The Higher Education at the Margins Program is a partnership between the Jesuit Refugee Service, with its 29 years of supporting and educating refugee populations, and Jesuit Commons, a group of Jesuit colleges and universities (and others) committed to linking worldwide Jesuit educational resources. It does this primarily by mobilizing voluntary efforts from the global network of universities, schools, churches, and social service centers administered by Jesuits, using the communications and social network tools now available through the Internet. This presentation will offer lessons learned in delivering higher education to people at the margins.
