Immigration Challenge

Welcome to the Immigration Challenge!

Welcome to the Immigration Challenge!  This challenge is a collaboration between Fogler Library and UMaine's Office of International Programs. 

Merriam-Webster defines an immigrant as “one that leaves one place to settle in another.” During International Education Week (November 13-17), you'll receive emails about various aspects of immigration and the immigrant experience, learning about who immigrants are and the challenges they face. 

The University of Maine recognizes that it is located on Marsh Island in the homeland of the Penobscot Nation, where issues of water and territorial rights, and encroachment upon sacred sites, are ongoing. Penobscot homeland is connected to the other Wabanaki Tribal Nations — the Passamaquoddy, Maliseet, and Micmac — through kinship, alliances and diplomacy. The university also recognizes that the Penobscot Nation and the other Wabanaki Tribal Nations are distinct, sovereign, legal and political entities with their own powers of self-governance and self-determination.
