UNH Screens New Documentary on Immigration Reform, Hosts Faculty Panel April 19, 2013

DURHAM, N.H. – The University of New Hampshire will join colleges and universities across the United States in recognizing the important role of immigration in driving innovation and creating jobs by screening a new 30-minute documentary Friday, April 19, 2013, at 2 p.m. in the Memorial Union Building’s Theater I followed by a discussion with university faculty.

The showing of Davis Guggenheim’s new documentary, The Dream is Now, is part of a national effort to highlight how U.S. immigration laws impact our ability to attract, retain, and educate the world’s top students and researchers. The film gives voice to and puts a human face on the undocumented children of immigrants.

Following the screening professors Cliff Brown, sociology, and Chris Reardon, political science, will lead a discussion on immigration reform.

The UNH Discovery Program is the core curriculum program for undergraduate students in all majors. For more information, visit www.unh.edu/discovery
