IVSP Experience: IVSP has enabled me to incorporate my passion for immigrant communities into my academic world. It's so exciting to be a part of a program where students go beyond the limits of regular majors and really tailor their studies to what they love. My experience working with my IVSP coordinators and peers has been so empowering.
