Discussion to focus on growing immigrant population in St. Louis

Focus on Public Administration & Policy at UMSL

International migration is a key reason the St. Louis region has not lost population in the most recent census. While the region’s changing demographics make opportunities, they also create challenges. A panel discussion at the University of Missouri–St. Louis will explore the many facets of St. Louis’ growing immigrant population.

The latest discussion in UMSL’s “Focus on Public Administration & Policy” series, “St. Louis’ Growing Immigrant Population: Opportunities and Issues for the Public Sector,” will begin at 3 p.m. Feb. 20 in 202 J.C. Penney Building/Conference Center at UMSL.

Panelists will include:

• Mark Tranel, director of the Public Policy Research Center at UMSL
• Anthony Rothert, legal director of American Civil Liberties Union Eastern Missouri
• Bob Fox, member of the St. Louis Regional Immigration and Innovation Steering Committee and board chairman of Casa de Salud

Julianne Stone, director of the Local Government Partnership at UMSL, will moderate.

The “Focus on Public Policy Administration & Policy” series considers topics at the intersection of public administration and public policy and fosters discussion between local government, nonprofit and academic leaders.

The discussions are free and open to the public. A networking reception will follow the program.
