Jul 9, 2024: Immigration Influx: The Future of Boom Towns

Cities around the globe are experiencing a large influx of migrants, with metropolises like New York City and London consistently ranking among the top destinations for those seeking a better life. Yet the impact of immigrants on these cities' populations is multifaceted.

Economically, migrants contribute to the labor force but can also add strain on public services. Socially, migration enriches the cultural fabric of cities, but it can also lead to social tensions, especially in areas with high concentrations of migrants. The large influx of migrants across the U.S. is bound to be a major political focus of the 2024 presidential election.

Join us as Matt Hall, Director of the Cornell Population Center, talks about the future shift in the demographics of some of the world’s major cities. He will discuss what he calls “boom towns” and highlight cities that are becoming major destinations for immigrants from Central America and Eastern Europe.


Why immigration has become an international topic of discussionWhich cities have been defined as “immigration boom towns”The factors that lead to certain cities becoming major landing spots for migrantsHow the demographics of major cities are shifting as a result of incoming migrantsSPEAKER

Jul 9, 2024: International Studies Summer Institute: Plant and Animal Migration at Stocking Hall

Join the Cornell University Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies and the South Asia Center at Syracuse University for the 2024 International Studies Summer Institute (ISSI)! This year, we will explore plant and animal migration around the world and at home. ISSI is a professional development workshop for practicing and pre-service K–12 educators.

Participants will explore the patterns and causes of plant and animal migration in a global context, as well as how they affect and are affected by human society. Scholars from Cornell University and Syracuse University will share their research and expertise from across different regions of the world, including Africa, East Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, South Asia, and Southeast Asia.

Object-based learning will be a specific focus. Sessions will include an introduction to the Einaudi Center’s culture kits and how they can support hands-on learning about plant and animal migration in different countries. Culture kits are a collection of cultural artifacts from around the world, tailored for use in K-12 classrooms. We will also feature an overview of Latin American and East Asian artwork on these topics at the Johnson Museum of Art and an introduction to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s eBird kits.

Who Can Participate

We welcome practicing and pre-service K–12 educators of all subjects and grade levels who work in New York State. While this year's institute will have more of a scientific focus than in past years, we believe this year’s theme will benefit educators of all subject areas, especially in developing cross-disciplinary, project-based activities with a global focus.


As a participant, you will...

gain tools and knowledge to apply in your classroom around issues of plant and animal migration internationally and in our backyards.

connect issues affecting yourself and your students here in the U.S. with other parts of the world.

“recharge” intellectual batteries and deepen your own understanding and appreciation for plant and animal migration.

have the option to complete a lesson plan for additional CTLE hours that incorporates content from the workshop, with the support of our outreach staff.

Enrollment is open now!
