Welcome to the International Institute of Minnesota
We empower New Americans as they begin new lives and achieve their full potential. Our comprehensive services range from refugee resettlement and citizenship and immigration support to English education, college preparation, and workforce and leadership development. Since our founding in 1919, the Institute has been a pillar of support for New Americans as they journey to safety, stability and success.
We lead with compassion, listen with patience, and respond with sensitivity and discretion to every unique situation, individual and family we meet.
We serve as a bridge between families, individuals and the greater Minnesota community as well as donors, policymakers and volunteers alike.
We believe in fostering the potential of every New American to learn, grow, thrive and enrich our Minnesota community.
