The School of Education is excited to host an Immigration and Education Conference on Saturday, March 19, 2011. There is no better place to look carefully at immigration, in its broadest sense, than here in the city referred to as "The Crossroads of the World", and especially at City College, an institution that has been educating immigrant students for over 100 years.  The conference will bring together students, faculty, educators, community members and politicians from NYC and beyond to address this timely and important topic.
