An uncertain political climate has left many students from marginalized communities even more vulnerable as they pursue their college educations. Students who are undocumented face unique challenges on college campuses that are affected by multiple institutional, state, and federal policies and practices. Participants will be introduced to barriers faced by both DACAmented and undocumented students.
The presenters, from both private and public colleges, featured student perspectives in the context of frequently confusing and conflicting policies and financial limitations. The online discussion provided strategies on enlisting institutional and community partners to create opportunities for students to achieve their educational goals.
