  • Presentation & Panel by the Immigrant & Refugee Center

    10:00-11:30am, UC Spruce C

    The presentation will be a look at the history of the United States welcoming newcomer immigrants and refugees to our country since 1882. We will be investigating the rises and falls in populations we have allowed in and investigating why we see such shifts in public sentiment about the issue. Further, we aim to dispel many of the popular myths we hear about immigrants and refugees in our popular discourse and replace these misconceptions with facts and stories about real people inside of our community.

    The word fika means to take a short break in one’s day for coffee and a snack, but really it is a concept to slow down and appreciate the more peaceful moments in everyday life. Higher Education and Student Affairs Leadership Professor, Dr. Tamara Yakaboski, spent a couple months of her sabbatical break last year as a visiting research at the University of Jyväskylä in Finland. In this session, she explores through photos and stories some of the lessons she learned from their higher education system and culture.
