Organization profile

Founded in 1965, the Immigration History Research Center (IHRC) aims to transform the way in which we understand immigration in the past and present. Along with its partner, the IHRC Archives (University Libraries), it is the oldest and largest interdisciplinary research center and archives devoted to preserving and understanding immigrant and refugee life in North America.

The center promotes interdisciplinary research on international migration, develops archives documenting immigrant and refugee life, especially in the U.S., and makes specialized scholarship accessible to students, teachers, and the public. In addition to scholarly programming with other departments, the center acts in partnership with various ethnic communities, historical agencies, research specialists, educators, and many others.  It makes accessible to researchers archival, print and digital collections documenting immigrant experience.
