These perspectives also provide key insights for faculty and staff at higher education institutions that currently enroll asylees or refugees, as well as those that may do so in the future. The volume is edited by Center for International Higher Education Director Hans de Wit, former CIHE postdoctoral fellow Hakan Ergin, BC alumni Lisa Unangst and Araz Khajarian, and CIHE Research Assistant and doctoral student Tessa DeLaquil. In addition to the editors, BC faculty and alumni contributors to the volume include: Natalie Borg, Hannah Maria Cazzetta, Thomas M. Crea, Michael Cronin, Kerri Evans, Betty Leask, Rebecca Lowenhaupt, Narintohn Luangrath, M. Brinton Lykes, Gabrielle Oliveira, Onur Özmen, Martin Scanlan, Kelber Tozini, and Ayenachew A. Woldegiyorgis.
