Arooba and Daniel, Members of the Universities of Sanctuary Steering group

Academics, professional staff, students, sanctuary scholars and many others have gathered at York St John University today to explore how Higher Education Institutions can do more to build a practice and a culture of welcome for people seeking sanctuary in the UK.

Detailed information from the conference including presentations, speeches, photos and a video will be available on this page shortly.

There are currently 11 recognised Universities of Sanctuary in the UK with many more working towards recognition.
