Colloquium Series

    Multiracial populations in the Era of International Migration

    Dr. Kate H. Choi
    Thurs. Oct. 14, 4:00 pm

The colloquium series brings together scholars and practitioners from a variety of academic backgrounds and professional sectors. Many are engaged in either designing and implementing policy or providing services to immigrant and refugee populations. Hearing speakers from government, legal, immigrant services and community sectors provides students with insight into “real-world” issues and decision-making processes, as well as seeing how academic research can be applied to understanding and resolving such issues.

Our colloquium series is a mandatory requirement for all students enrolled in the MER specialization. Talks are scheduled during the academic year on a bi-weekly basis. In addition to our MER students and faculty, the colloquia regularly attracts students, staff, and faculty from the broader Western campus and local community members interested in what we do.undefined
