From the resource:
One of my undergraduate colleagues at Rutgers, now Dr. Evan Taparata, revealed that he and numerous other scholars had collaborated at the University of Minnesota to develop the #ImmigrationSyllabus website about immigration concerns in history. As I read through the online resource, I realized that these scholars had already achieved many of my own objectives. Evan generously offered his time to speak with me about some of the goals and processes that underlined this initiative. My objective for this blog post is to highlight the development of the #ImmigrationSyllabus. A follow-up blog post will explore the numerous ways in which scholars, educators, and policy makers have applied the syllabus in their own work.
