BACK TO ALL PROJECTS

Waves of unprecedented global migration coupled with the current political landscape has produced a growing number of “undocumented” immigrants living in the U.S. Undocumented students are one of the most underrepresented, overlooked, and underserved populations in higher education, with only one in 10 undocumented 16-24 year-olds enrolled in college in the US. Through a national survey of undocumented college students in the US, we seek to explore the ways in which they are thriving, what barriers to success they face in college settings, and how they navigate developmental milestones such as identity formation, and engaging in family and social responsibilities.
