The Diversity Dimensions Committee Speaker Series: Understanding the Immigration Experience

Date & Time:
Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2022 | 2:00 - 3:00 PM

Description:

The Diversity Dimensions Committee continues its Speaker Series focused on providing insight into the experiences of our diverse student population by welcoming Robert H. Cohen, attorney at Porter Wright Morris & Arthur LLP, specializing in immigration and nationality law on Tuesday, January 18th at 2:00 pm.

As an institution that welcomes students from around the world operating in a city with more than 155,000 foreign-born residents, understanding the various immigration experiences of our students and neighbors allows us to better support those we serve. During this event, Rob will discuss the diverse experiences of individuals in the U.S. as they navigate the immigration and legal systems and how process differs for those seeking citizenship or permanent resident status, those who hold visas indicating non-immigrant status, as well as undocumented immigrants. In addition to creating a better understanding of the diverse experiences of immigrants in our community, Rob will also help to address misconceptions and dispel many myths about the immigration process from a legal perspective.
