The IHRC supports the College of Liberal Arts in offering University of Minnesota undergraduate students an extraordinary educational experience. It helps to develop and to publicize courses that feature migration related themes, and it sponsors at least one special event each year that is organized with student interests in mind. Its specialized collections are open to undergraduate researchers, and IHRC staff work with faculty to offer course-specific advice on research opportunities for beginning historians.
The IHRC also works particularly closely with graduate students across the disciplines:
Involvement with students reaches well beyond the classrooms of the University of Minnesota. The IHRC works closely with public school teachers in planning workshops and developing curricular materials useful in a wide variety of classrooms (click here for some related programs/events for public school teachers).
The Friends of the IHRC offers topical prizes of $100 for best Minnesota History Day projects that apply the theme to immigration history.
