Center for Immigration Research

The Center for Immigration Research is comprised of researchers at the University of Houston, as well as other local institutions, whose research is focused on the examination of immigration trends and related international and national immigration policy. The Center serves as a resource for immigration data for local institutions, organizations and policy-makers involved with the settlement and incorporation of America's "new immigrants" into their communities. The Center’s activities include sponsoring an annual speaker series at the University of Houston on immigration issues.
