Refugee sponsorship effort continues for campus group

A campus effort to sponsor a refugee family from Syria for resettlement in Canada has reached its initial fundraising target and submitted the sponsorship application. Now the real work begins, report organizers.

“With so much help from across the university community, we have raised more than the minimum required to bring a family here,” says professor Anneke Smit, part of the Group of Five sponsors based in Windsor Law. “This has been a campus-wide effort. Every faculty contributed, as well as individuals and groups.”
