Who We Are
Creating a community where New Americans have respect, support and safety, and where they can achieve their full potential.
At the International Institute of Minnesota (IIMN), our team identifies opportunities, provides encouragement and listens with compassion. We value stories of survival, dreams of safety and hopes for new beginnings. We celebrate the dedication of New Americans in the classroom, in the workforce and in everyday life.
Witnessing the transformation from a student speaking little English to watching them converse with confidence, watching a New American vote for the first time as a U.S. citizen or seeing a nursing assistant student pass licensing exams in a new language— it’s a joy to celebrate every one of our client’s personal and professional successes. From arriving to thriving, we are proud to have been a pillar of support to New Americans for over 100 years.
Throughout our 100-year history, the International Institute of Minnesota has offered innovative programs and services to meet the changing needs of Minnesota’s immigrants and refugees.
