Over the past two decades, California has opened the halls of higher education to undocumented youth. State policies and institutional practices have steadily increased their numbers, and California now hosts one in five of the nation’s undocumented college students. But how are these students faring once they arrive on campus? Drawing on a survey of nearly 1,300 undocumented CSU and UC students, the report takes stock of the educational experiences and wellbeing of undocumented college students in California. This special briefing offers in-depth coverage of the findings and a discussion of what stakeholders need to know to advance equity and inclusion for undocumented students. The briefing will feature a conversation with some of the report’s authors about key findings and offer specific steps that educational institutions can take to combat persisting inequalities and forge pathways toward equity and inclusion.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Learn more about UC PromISE online.
