Refugee Work Featured in The News & Observer

Refugee Work Featured in The News & Observer

Romance Studies Professor Deb Reisinger and her students continue to gain media attention for their work with local refugees. The News & Observer is running a feature on articles written by the students through January. This project stems from Professor Reisinger’s service learning course on French, global displacement, and working with refugees. The fall course had 16 students helping local refugees with English and adjusting to life in North Carolina.
