This website has been created by the students in the special topics course, History of Immigration and Refugee Resettlement in the United States from World War II to the Present – HIST 497, which was offered during the fall 2012 semester. As the Rosenberg Civic Engagement class of the semester, students endeavored to create a resource for our campus and the wider community which could serve as an entry point for gaining a deeper understanding of and appreciation for the recent history of immigration to our region. In addition, the website offers a sampling of resources to explore and may provide a new perspective on our campus, Delaware County, and the Philadelphia region. We welcome your questions, comments and feedback.
