Findings on undocumented students in higher education study coming soon
Findings of a major national study of undocumented students at Jesuit colleges and universities will be unveiled and discussed at a Washington, DC, event on February 26.
In the United States today, many undocumented students, bright, talented, and motivated young men and women who were brought into this country by parents without the authorization of the federal government or who entered the U.S. legally but overstayed their visas, find themselves prevented from developing their full potential, limited in their ability to contribute to the civic life of their surroundings, and living in fear of being deported.
Results of the study, “Immigration: Undocumented Students in Higher Education,” are being released by a collaborative group of three institutions, including Fairfield University, Loyola University Chicago’s Center for Urban Research and Learning, and Santa Clara University.
