Every Campus a Refuge: On this episode of #CompactNationPod, Andrew talks with Diya Abdo, the 2019 recipient of Campus Compact’s Thomas Ehrlich Civically Engaged Faculty Award. Diya is an assistant professor of English at Guilford College and founder of Every Campus a Refuge, an organization that uses space on campus to host refugee families. Created in response to Pope Francis’ call for every European parish to host a refugee family, Every Campus a Refuge provides refugees with support, aiming to provide a softer landing and a stronger beginning to their resettlement experience. Plus, get some more updates from Iowa about the upcoming caucus, and hear about some of what you can expect at Compact20, our upcoming national conference.
