With this rapid expansion of institutions for immigrant integration, there is a demand for a better understanding of how these institutions can most effectively facilitate receiving and integrating immigrants and ultimately maximize their economic and civic contributions.

Published by the University of Southern California Center for the Study of Immigrant Integration and the Americas Society/Council of the Americas (AS/COA), this report strives to meet that demand by examining the origins, functions and goals of existing offices and highlighting the best practices and strategies of successful initiatives.

This report was published with the support of Welcoming America staff and the Knight Foundation.
