International Institute of MN - Distance Education (LitMN)
The International Institute of Minnesota provides services and resources to empower New Americans (immigrants and refugees) in the pursuit of their goals. From language learning and job training to immigration assistance, citizenship classes, refugee resettlement, case management and the Festival of Nations, the Institute offers New Americans a pathway for a strong start to a new life in our community. In 2022, the Institute served over 3,000 New Americans. Programs at the Institute include Refugee Resettlement, Immigration Services, English, Citizenship, and Community Orientation Education, College Readiness, Workforce Training, and Medical Career Advancement. Since returning to our brick-and-mortar building in 2022, education and workforce classes have taken on a new landscape. The ABE programs at the Institute have online, in-person, hyflex, and hybrid offerings to meet the needs of our students. While these means and methods have proven effective for reaching our students, there remains a gap in our education programming: 1. The ABE programs at the Institute, excluding College Readiness Academy, do not offer consistent distance learning opportunities; 2. Clients receiving immigration and refugee services are not always able to enter education and workforce programs for traditional synchronous classes. The goal of this project is to find and implement a meaningful distance learning platform that meets the needs of students and departments across the Institute thereby increasing access to education for adults in our community.
