Grand Rapids Project

The research team interviewed organizations run by refugees and immigrants in the Grand Rapids area. The interviews were conducted by the faculty and research assistants from U of M with leaders from the organizations. The interviews asked about the status of the organizations, the services they offer, and the populations they serve in order to gain a comprehensive understanding of the organizations. A survey was also administered by the research team. The survey was collected to understand the activities, priorities, and connections of refugee and immigrant community organizations.
