Pathways to Prosperity: New policy directions and innovative local practices for newcomer integration and attraction

This project will aim to promote interagency collaboration in order to improve immigrant integration. In order to achieve this goal, the intern will be involved in clarifying employer and college/university needs, local settlement agency capacities, and the institutional mechanisms that would be needed to promote and govern interagency collaboration. The research process will involve interviews, focus groups, and reviews of the literature. The project will lay out a coherent, evidence-based set of ideas and propositions to be used by LASI to construct viable commercial relationships. These relationships would entail the provision of services and advice by LASI members or member coalitions to the following actors: colleges and universities, employers and employer associations, international students, and internationally trained workers
