RCIS logo News & Events

The Ryerson Centre for Immigration and Settlement (RCIS)
aims to be a leader in the transdisciplinary exploration of international migration, integration, and diaspora and refugee studies. In addition to supporting research in these areas, the Centre’s mission includes mentoring students and consolidating Ryerson’s reputation as the pre‐eminent site of knowledge development and exchange with governments, community organizations, and other academics.

The overall goal of the RCIS is to advance policy-related research and scholarship in the areas of immigration and settlement studies, both nationally and internationally.

I invite you to explore our website and participate in upcoming RCIS activities.

Dr. Usha George
, Academic Director, RCIS
