GRD 5530 From Graduate School to the Workforce: Impact of Immigration(1 hr) 

What does all this recent talk about immigration mean for you as a graduate student preparing to enter the workforce?

How is immigration impacting our communities and the workplace?     

What are the challenges and opportunities to working in a more diverse work setting?

Join the School of Graduate Studies for a 1-hour seminar course to explore these and other questions about immigration and the workforce. At the end of the term, we’ll head to New York City for a weeklong stay at the ASU Loft where we will learn first-hand, how communities and companies are responding to the changing face of America.

Enrolled students will participate in an 8-day NYC Study Away Experience May 21-28, 2017 at the ASU Loft.
