Friday, July 22. David Dyssegaard Kallick, Director of the Immigration Research Initiative at the Fiscal Policy Institute since 2007, will be presenting at The Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities’s 2016 CUMU Conference’s Opening Keynote.

David Dyssegaard Kallick’s keynote speech, titled “Can Immigrants Revitalize America’s Shrinking Cities?” will take place on Monday, October 24th from 8:30-10:00 AM at the 22nd Annual CUMU Conference: Charting the Future of Metropolitan Universities in Washington, D.C. His speech will explain why institutions in urban and metropolitan areas are struggling with a tax base that can not support them, and how cities rebounding with growing populations of immigrants are agents of change in supporting a multicultural revitalization of central cities.
