A nationally recognized center for language research and language
training, the Indiana Center for Intercultural Communication (ICIC)
is a center in the IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI. ICIC was
created in 1998 to enhance links between the city of Indianapolis,
the state of Indiana, and cultures/nations throughout the world.
ICIC strives for excellence in language and intercultural training
in academic, professional and other occupational contexts.
As part of ICIC's mission to promote and share research that
improves intercultural communication, we have partnered with the
International Center of Indianapolis to present "Immigration in
Indiana: Real Life Diversity." This panel's goal is to inform
central Indiana about the diversity of immigrant Hoosiers and their
contributions to our state. Presentations will focus on immigration-
related issues that affect the community: economic impact; immigrant
business ownership; language, culture, and education issues;
immigration laws; and services available to immigrants. The panel
will conclude with life stories that we hope will put a human face
on the issue of immigration and show how immigrants make a positive
contribution to the state of Indiana.
If you will attend this FREE event let me know by November 13th at
alscampb@... or 274-2555.
