The Refugee Crisis course conceived in 2016 by Dr. Karen Becker and adapted for ongoing policy changes provides both a platform for students to begin to understand the greatest migration of people since the 1940s as well as explore broader issues of ethics, responsibility, and resource management. The course presents a wide lens on the current crisis and allows students to narrow that lens as they prepare a culminating project evaluating some aspect of the current crisis that fits with their major field study.
Dr. Susan Hume is a frequent collaborator with students in their research most recently on Chinese markets, social responsibility issues and providing diversity in the corporate world.
