The Institute on Immigrant Integration Research & Policy hosted its inaugural annual conference on immigrant integration on May 22, 2024. This conference, held at the University at Albany, brought together practitioners, policymakers, policy implementers, and researchers to explore opportunities for integrating immigrants in New York State, regardless of their length of stay or year of arrival. Key topics included the cost-benefits of immigrants’ social, economic, and political integration, measuring immigrant integration, inclusive governance, and the implementation of promising models and evidence-based integration practices and policies.

The Conference featured a keynote presentation and four consecutive sessions:

(a) Fair employment and workforce development;
(b) Health equity for New Americans;
(c) Access and quality of education for immigrant students; and
(d) Welcoming communities and the role of governance


The conference was convened with the Center for Women in Government & Civil Society at the University at Albany’s Rockefeller College of Public Affairs & Policy and the Rockefeller Institute of Government.
