University of York (UK) Our support for those affected by global crises
Sadly, members of our international community are sometimes impacted by conflict and humanitarian disasters. Find out how we support our staff and students, as well as how members of our community can help.
Our university was founded with a strong sense of social purpose: to deliver teaching and research to ‘ameliorate human life and conditions’ – to make things better. We’re proud of the way our community has rallied together in the face of challenges.
Recent global events have prompted us to think about how we can offer more direct support to people whose lives have been disrupted by war, conflict or other humanitarian crises. We have explained here the support we can offer to students and staff affected by these situations.
