Vulnerable and displaced students play an important role in realizing institutional internationalization goals. Successfully identifying and admitting these students often requires a specific skill set and tools.

In response to the world’s global education emergencies, IIE – with support from the Catalyst Foundation for Universal Education – developed the Platform for Education in Emergencies Response (IIE PEER), an online clearinghouse to enable displaced and refugee students to find educational opportunities so they may continue formal and informal higher education.
