2023 Annual Report

Standing Strong: Fostering Stability and Opportunity for New Americans

 

This past year the International Institute of Minnesota realized the goals envisioned from its Next Century capital campaign completed in 2022. Our beautiful, light filled classrooms and welcoming, professional office spaces made serving more students and clients possible.  With your support, in 2023 the number of New Americans in our programs grew by 38 percent. This major expansion came just in time to accommodate demand from growing immigration, refugee arrivals and employers.
