RIT Community Shares Immigration Experiences at RIT Libraries

Tuesday, November 21, 2017

RIT Libraries launched My Untold Story, a new event series that invites members of the RIT community to share their personal experiences in an effort to challenge stereotypes and build understanding through dialogue. At the first event on November 10, four members of the RIT community shared their experiences immigrating to the U.S. with over 50 participants in engaging, small group discussions. Participants learned about a professor's pursuit of political asylum, an alumna's fight to complete her education as a Dreamer, a student's struggle to learn English, and a staff member's work in international deaf education.
