The Center for Global Migration Studies at the University of Maryland at College Park examines the long immigration history of the U.S. & globally.
Since 1965, legal and demographic changes have made the United States an immigrant society once again. Inspired by this fact, the Center for Global Migration Studies aims to make the University of Maryland the hub for understanding the long immigration history of this country, from 1500 to the present, and its connections to world history. The Center will provide a distinctive institutional home for interdisciplinary and trans-national research, for training faculty and students, and for distributing information about the history of the immigrant experience to a broad public.
Mission: 1. To advance transnational scholarship on the history of immigration 2. To expand the number of immigration courses offered at University of Maryland 3. To serve as a source of outreach and community service to the University’s surrounding communities

The Center for Global Migration Studies at the University of Maryland wishes to stress its strong and continuous support for all immigrant students, regardless of status, and particularly for those participating in the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program. There are approximately 100 DACA students currently at the University of Maryland. DREAMers enhance our community and our nation through their scholarship, their service, and their labor. We applaud University of Maryland President Wallace Loh’s statement today that “ending legal protection for these young people, before enacting a permanent legislative solution, would cause turmoil in their lives and contradicts our bedrock values as an immigrant nation.”
Rescinding the program when there is not currently available legislative relief is inhumane and needlessly cruel. We call on Congress to act immediately to pass legislation to replace the DACA program. The Center for Global Migration Studies is here to support our students and assist in any way needed. For further information consult undocumented.umd.edu or the following:
