NASDAE Webinar:

Navigating and Leveraging a New Migration Policy Institute Data Analysis on Adult Learning Needs in All 50 States


Adult ELs and immigrants are important target populations for WIOA Title II programs, but it can be difficult for states to determine the makeup of these populations and the implications for their programs. In this session, a researcher from the Migration Policy Institute (MPI), a leading think tank on immigration policy, will provide an overview and orientation to a new MPI analysis that provides valuable data on the adult learning needs of adults in all 50 states. The session will feature a detailed description of the extent and nature of the analysis as well as an activity intended to help policymakers and their staff navigate and utilize the data.

Date/Time: August 2, 2024 @ 2:00-3:00 PM ET

Presented by: Migration Policy Institute (MPI)
