Immigrants and Minnesota's Workforce

The Office of University Economic Development (UED) has helped bring together a diverse group of stakeholders from the state, the University and the private sector to discuss the current and future role of international immigration in meeting the needs of Minnesota’s workforce.

Under the leadership of Humphrey School of Public Affairs Dean Eric Schwartz and Maura Donovan, Executive Director of UED, this Committee on Minnesota Workforce and Immigrants commissioned a study by Associate Professor Ryan Allen to provide a well-researched foundation for such discussions.
