We welcome, connect and empower the foreign born, and encourage the region’s support for different cultures.


 

The International Institute is honored to be part of Western New York’s long history of welcoming immigrants. Our 100 years of experience give us a unique perspective on the value of the region’s immigrant communities to Western New York.

 


 

Our vision is an inclusive multicultural Western New York that embraces all people.


We see our role as serving clients and as strenuous advocates for the foreign born.
We believe immigrants and refugees are critical to the resurgence of Western New York.
