Who We Are

Dr. Jennifer Holmes

As Dean of the School of Economic, Political and Policy Sciences, Holmes has put in countless hours of research into the topic of refugees and asylum seekers.

In addition to her role at UTD, Holmes is passionate about the rights of refugees and asylum seekers. In 2015, she co-authored a book about US Asylum Policy towards refugees in collaboration with the University of Pennsylvania.

 She is particularly knowledgeable about the sociopolitical issues that hinder or allow the flow of refugees in resettlement efforts, and how much help refugees need when they first arrive in the United States.
