Teach-In on Russia’s War in Ukraine

Russia’s unprovoked military assault on Ukraine has created the single greatest refugee flow in Europe since 1945. Seven million people have been internally displaced and over five million have fled abroad. Among the displaced are many scholars, the majority of whom hope to return to their homes in Ukraine as soon as possible to contribute to the rebuilding of the country and the continued education of its people. The College of the Liberal Arts of Penn State University offers a Teach-In on Russia’s War in Ukraine to all members of the Penn State community.

Tamara Martsenyuk, Associate Professor of Sociology, National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy
