A new report from the UC Collaborative to Promote Immigrant and Student Equity (UC PromISE) establishes that immigration policy is disrupting the educational experiences and wellbeing not only of undocumented students, but also those students who are citizens from mixed-status families.

Advancing Equity for Undocumented Students and Students from Mixed-Status Families at the University of California features data from a survey of 2,742 UC undergraduate students and compares the experiences of three groups: undocumented immigrant students, U.S. citizen students with undocumented parents, and U.S. citizen students with immigrant parents who are permanent residents or naturalized citizens. The report powerfully illustrates that immigration policy disrupts the educational experiences of a larger group of students than often recognized. Drawing lessons from undocumented student programs at the UC, it identifies areas of improvement that can aid all universities in advancing equity for all students impacted by immigration policies.


This virtual panel discussion of the report will feature the authors in conversation with UC undocumented service providers. Questions may be submitted in advance online.

The webinar is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is required. A Zoom link will be provided prior to the event for confirmed registrants. For further information or questions, please email laura.enriquez@uci.edu.
