Immigration Policy and its Impact from a Wyoming and U.S. Perspective|Simpson Symposium
 

Header

The UW American Heritage Center’s Alan K. Simpson Institute is sponsoring a symposium on a highly topical and timely matter – immigration.  The event, titled “Where Are We Now? Immigration Policy and Its Impact from a Wyoming and a National Perspective,” will occur September 17 - 18, 2014 at the UW American Heritage Center and the Hilton Garden Inn/UW Conference Center.  The symposium will delve into the complex nature and scope of immigration and help determine how immigration has contributed to the social, economic, and political fabric of our state and nation.

The Simpson Institute’ mission is to facilitate study of the roles and impacts of various individuals/groups that have put their stamp on our region and the nation.  Immigrants have certainly shaped, and continue to influence, policy and culture on a local, state and national level.

Find out more about this event by visiting the about page, viewing the schedule, and seeing who is speaking on the event's panels.
