WELCOME TO THE IMMIGRANT INTEGRATION SOCIAL NETWORKING SITE.
The Migration Policy Institute’s National Center on Immigrant Integration Policy received hundreds of applications from across the United States in the inaugural year of its E Pluribus Unum Prizes program. The breadth and quality of the work of these applicants inspired us to create the U.S. Immigrant Integration Network.
The Network allows those who assist immigrants and their children in joining the mainstream of U.S. society to share effective policies and practices. It also allows leaders and practitioners in the emerging field and sub-fields of immigrant integration to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing them in their work and share ideas and strategies for greater success.
Whether you are working in a community group, government agency, business or elsewhere this site will allow you to:
- learn more about immigrant integration efforts underway in different parts of the U.S.;
- find resources on issues, policies and practices in a wide range of integration sub-fields;
- form discussion groups and share information with others on topics of common interest;
- and showcase your work and share your experiences and challenges.
This site is intended to meet your needs: please feel free to suggest others you think would benefit from joining, and actively participate in building a vibrant online community of immigrant integration leaders and practitioners!
The U.S. Immigrant Integration Programs Network is a membership site. All members must be approved by the Network host.
The U.S. Immigrant Integration Network is hosted by the Migration Policy Institute's (MPI) National Center on Immigrant Integration Policy (NCIIP).
