University of Kansas to create immigration studies center

Wednesday, 01 April 2015

LAWRENCE, Kan. -The University of Kansas has hired two sociologists to plan a center for migration and immigration studies.

The university says Victor Agadjanian and Cecilia Menjívar, both distinguished professors at Arizona State University, will begin work in Kansas this fall.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/1bMj6Ut ) the professors will start planning the center when they arrive on campus.

The center will use funds allocated to the university's Foundation Distinguished Professor initiative. It will first operate within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences but the university hopes the center will eventually become a self-supported research center.
