Learn more about Local Heritage and Integration!

A local study has shown a unique way that local history can bring cultures together. Dr. Mike Kimball is Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Northern Colorado. He shares what he learned from a 3-year research collaboration in Greeley.

The project was a joint effort between UNC,  Centennial Village Museum, Greeley high schools, the Immigrant and Refugee Center of Northern Colorado, and families from local immigrant and refugee communities. This project found that through education and history, we can find commonalities and make deep connections. Greeley’s turn of the 20th-century immigrant past can help 21st-century newcomers build a sense of place and social capital in their new home.

The City of Greeley Communications & Engagement Office is offering free training opportunities. These classes promote diversity and inclusion in our Greeley community. The classes are free.  Please RSVP before the day of the class.
