Today's Social Workers Serving Tomorrow's Citizens

In partnership with Boston College’s School of Social Work, the Immigrant Integration Lab (IIL) is an applied research lab exploring the intersection of social work, social policy, and immigrant inclusion. We gather the latest and most effective resources on immigrant integration, allowing professionals in the field to best serve immigrant communities. Each month we explore a new topic integral to serving immigrants in our current environment. Our platform connects academics, faculty, students, and practitioners together with a common goal of supporting full social, civic, and economic integration of the foreign born in the United States.
