Helping New Americans achieve self-sufficiency and full membership in American life.
We seek a community where New Americans can ﬁnd respect, support, and safety, and where they can achieve their full potential in their new lives.
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.

Due to building renovations of our permanent Como Avenue location, the Institute office space has temporarily relocated to 2300 Myrtle Ave, Suite 140, St. Paul, MN. Visitors must have a pre-scheduled appointment. We anticipate returning all programs and staff to our Como Avenue space in December 2021.
