Versione stampabile

SuXr, which reads “super”, stands for "students for refugees".

The new edition of the project will start in October. 

The project is part of the actions that the University of Trento is implementing, in collaboration with Cinformi and the Autonomous Province of Trento, with the objective of encouraging the social integration of migrants through the collaboration with the University and its students.

The primary aim of the project is to raise awareness among students on the issue of refugees and asylum seekers.
In parallel, it also aims to engage students in volunteerism through a participatory approach.
Finally, the project also serves as a meeting point for supply and demand of volunteering services.

All students of the University of Trento are welcome to participate.

At the end of the volunteering experience, the organization will provide students with a certificate confirming the work done, and will notify the university so that it can award students 3 credit points.

The types of activities are different from one organization to the other. All activities are listed in the document available in the Useful links section.
