Colin Powell School to offer pro-seminar on Immigration in American Life

Dean Vincent Boudreau

Immigration is such a vital part of the history of this country and this city, and the City College of New York has traditionally been a pathway for immigrants to educational, personal and professional achievement. With this history in mind, Dean Vincent Boudreau of City College's Colin Powell School for Civic and Global Leadership – named for a famous son of Jamaican immigrants – created the Dean's Pro-Seminar on Immigration in American Life.

Intended as an intensive exploration of the role that immigration has played in American life, the Dean’s Pro-Seminar will focus on three broad themes: The Immigrant Experience; Immigrants in America; and Contemporary immigration and its impact on society.

Drawing on the full resources of the Colin Powell School – sociology, anthropology, psychology, political science and economics – the class participants will also go outside the classroom, augmenting the readings and lectures by visiting area sites important to understanding the historic and the contemporary immigrant experience.

Classes begin Sept. 1. More information is available here.
