The Center for Migration Studies of New York (CMS), Catholic Charities of the Diocese of San Diego and the University of San Diego announce the 2016 Catholic Immigrant Integration Initiative Conference from November 28-29, 2016 at the University of San Diego's Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice.

The primary purpose of the conference is to advance the goals of CMS's Catholic Immigrant Integration Initiative (CIII) which seeks to study, document and support a growing network of diverse Catholic institutions that are working successfully to advance immigrant integration, empowerment and well-being. The conference will:

  • Convey the spiritual and theological vision that undergirds the Catholic Church's work with immigrants;
  • Review public policies affecting immigrant integration and academic research on the work of Church institutions with immigrant communities;
  • Lift up model integration programs and ministries; and
  • Offer optional field visits to migrant ministries and shelters in San Diego and Tijuana on Nov. 30.

To join Catholic leaders, scholars and immigrant communities in this important dialogue, register now. This conference is free to all USD faculty, staff, and students, however, please pre-register for the conference if you plan to attend.
