On April 13th, President of No Lost Generation-Lehigh Katie Morris ’18 and CCE Director Dr. Sarah Stanlick presented to the  UN NGO Committee on Mental Health, Working Group on Refugee & Immigrant Mental Health.

Lehigh has had a relationship with our local resettlement agencies since 2010, through both the Global Citizenship Program and the Center for Community Engagement.  This partnership, now with Bethany Christian Services, has incorporated service-learning, documentary film creation, tutoring, fundraising, and public advocacy.

The efforts of the Lehigh team have been featured in outlets such as GlobalSL.org, and recently, Stanlick and community partner/refugee resettlement site director Marla Sell published a journal article entitled, “Beyond Superheroes and Sidekicks: Empowerment, Efficacy, and Education in Community Partnerships“.
