CSII Graduate Student Working Group


The immigration graduate group is a multidisciplinary workshop that brings graduate students and faculty alike to engage in critical dialogue on immigrant integration research. Last year, the immigration graduate group had the pleasure of beginning the year with CSII’s director, Dr. Manuel Pastor. Throughout the year, we hosted various peer workshops for graduate students to get feedback on their fellowship applications, scholarly presentations, and research. In addition, the group attended and supported CSII in the CA Bold conference. We closed the year by hosting Dr. Susan Coutin, a leader in immigrant integration research.
