USCIS is dedicated to ensuring that stakeholders are fully informed of our programs and processes.  We want stakeholders to have the opportunity to participate in identifying agency priorities, developing policies and programs, and assessing organizational performance.

Our Goal is to…

  • Build new partnerships and enhance existing relationships with a broad range of stakeholders, including community based and faith-based organizations, state and local government representatives, advocacy groups, and other stakeholders who are interested in USCIS policies and operations.  
  • Maintain a transparent and collaborative approach to policy making and agency operations through information sharing, stakeholder feedback, and engagement opportunities.
  • Have ongoing and robust dialogue with stakeholders to achieve our mission and core values.
