Immigration has been at the center of a wide range of policy discussions including homeland security, economic and work force development as well as education benefits, health coverage, and driver privileges extended to visitors filling temporary jobs. The Institute for Public Policy and Social Research's (IPPSR) May 31st policy forum will look at the impact of more recent discussions of immigration and Michigan's stance on foreign visitors and immigrants to our State. Particular attention will be on Asian immigrants given that recruitment for IT and tech jobs are mostly conducted among this immigrant group and are said to be most affected by visa reforms. 

The panelists will be:

-Stephanie Nawyn, Associate Professor, MSU's Department of Sociology and Director of the Center for Gender in Global Context

-Christine Bargerstock, Associate Director, Office of International Students and Scholars, MSU International Studies and Programs

-Karen Phillippi, Deputy Director, Michigan Office for New Americans

-Bing Goei, Director, Michigan Office for New Americans

This forum will be held at the Anderson House Office Building, Mackinac Room, 5th Floor, 124 N. Capitol Avenue (corner of Ottawa and Capitol Avenues), in Lansing, MI. There is no charge to attend. 

To register for this forum, please visit IPPSR's website

Inequalities conference announcement. Paper submissions invited.  Michigan State University's College of Education is announcing a conference on "Addressing inequalities, mobility and dislocation: Insights from international and domestic research and practice" to be held in East Lansing, Michigan, June 12-13. This conference will bring together researchers and practitioners from Michigan, across the continent, and around the world, working across a variety of disciplinary and professional perspectives. Together, we will explore how to work toward educational contexts that can help individuals, families, and communities thrive in the midst of inequity due to mobility, displacement, and other changes to education on local, national, and transnational scales. ​
 
 In the context of the current global moment of social, economic, political and cultural transformation and dislocation, inequalities are growing. Exploring ways to understand and address them is even more urgently needed. This conference creates an opportunity for dialogue among US and international scholars, practitioners, and graduate students working on inequality in a range of contexts, drawing on different disciplinary perspectives and approaches. Our goal is to strengthen our insights and ability to create or support educational contexts (from early childhood through higher education) that help students, families and communities thrive in the midst of such turbulent and uncertain times. 
 
We welcome your paper proposals and participation.  Papers can focus on any level of education (early childhood through higher education/adult), and can address issues pertaining to local, national, or transnational contexts.  See the website for more information about the conference, registration, and paper proposal submissions.
 
(Proposal submission deadline extended to April 1).
