Mission and Vision


To foster interdisciplinary collaboration in research among migration and immigrant incorporation scholars and to translate that work into innovative policy solutions that advance the well-being of migrants to the U.S. This research will also inform the contours of community engagement in the Tampa Bay region by determining needs for programs, placing students in the communities as part of their training, and coordinating local stakeholders to meet the needs of local immigrant communities. 


Our center aspires to be a model for inclusive academic research on migrant experiences that translates into real world impact for the well-being of individuals and communities.
