CEMiHR embraces a community-engaged approach to building trust and solid relationships with migrant communities. This approach promotes well-being through innovative research that informs interventions in practice and policy. CEMiHR consists of faculty, students, social workers, health workers and community partners who have equal partnerships in research, training, mentorships, and field internships.

Research Projects

CEMiHR promotes community-engaged research among faculty and bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral students by providing an environment for fostering research, pursuing research grants, publishing research results, disseminating to the community, advancing practice-based knowledge-generation. Please see CEMiHR projects.

Training and Mentorship

CEMiHR invites students who are interested in community-engaged Research and Migration Studies to receive mentorship and train in research designs and methodologies. We offer students the opportunity to gain knowledge in migration studies, work intensely with migration-based research data sets, and develop and mold their research skills through individualized training and mentorship plans. Please contact Dr. Miriam Kuttikat for more information.

Local, National, and International Internships

CEMiHR is equipped with coordinating internal field internships with students based on CSWE guidelines. These experiential learning opportunities prepare students for professional roles in ‘Community Health/Mental Health’, ‘International Social Work’ and ‘Migration’ areas. Field internships allow students to learn and practice key skills under the close supervision of a experienced licensed professional and with the support of classes in which they are participating. This allows students to have good foundational experience before working with clients, families, and communities. Please contact Dr. Miriam Kuttikat for more information.
