Artykuł jest poświęcony problematyce adaptacji studentów „wewnętrznie przesiedlonych” (np. uciekinierów z obszarów objętych wojną we wschodniej Ukrainie) do środowiska akademickiego z pomocą samorządu studenckiego. Na podstawie przeprowadzonych badań dowodzi się, że najefektywniejszą platformą do tego, aby studenci „wewnętrzni uchodźcy” zaadaptowali się w nowym dla siebie środowisku akademickim, jest system samorządu studenckiego. W artykule zostały również zdefiniowane i objaśnione uwarunkowania organizacyjne oraz pedagogiczne adaptowania się osób „wewnętrznie przesiedlonych” do środowiska nowej uczelni.
The article deals with the problem of adaptation of “internally displaced people” (for example, refugees from war zones in eastern Ukraine) to the university environment by means of students’ self-government. According to the survey among IDP students who were transferred from other higher education institutions, it was found that the most favourable field for the development of constructive relations between displaced students and “domestic” students of the academic community of the university could be created by a system of students’ self-government. The organizational and pedagogical conditions of adaptation of IDP students to the university environment were defined. The paper proves that students’ self-government in a variety of forms and organizational levels can ensure successful adaptation of displaced students at a new place of study.
