The Collaborative Refugee and Immigrant Information Center, created under the direction of the Center for Cultural Dynamics, was a regional referral and information database intended to assist people working with refugees and immigrants in the Rocky Mountain region. Begun in 1992, it was the area's first computer bulletin board for service providers and those conducting mental health- and human rights-specific refugee and immigrant research.

The database was divided into two areas, the first being a compilation of bibliographic citations on a variety of topics within the larger framework of refugee and immigrant mental health. CRIIC also had an extensive hard-copy library which contained copies of many of the works listed in the computer. The second area was a listing of service providers in the Rocky Mountain region and included such pertinent information as addresses, as well as key contacts and specific ethnic groups on which a provider may concentrate.

Since that time, CRIIC has expanded to include a number of other resources and resource hyperlinks.  Among the most important of these are African Initiatives and Students for Africa, both based at the Josef Korbel School for International Studies at the University of Denver.  Humanitarian, human rights, and development information -- not all of which deals with refugees and immigrants -- now is central.
