To our Partner College Presidents and teams,
We are pleased to share that we have released In Their Own Words, a report summarizing the survey responses of 1,400 of our Scholars. The Report provides a unique picture of our Scholars and their employment and educational gains, while painting a portrait of the uncertainty and anxiety that Scholars face in a difficult immigration climate, particularly with the impending end of DACA and TPS.
We have included recommendations for federal, state, and local policymakers; higher education institutions; the business community; mental health providers; and community members to help empower and enable immigrant students to succeed.
The Chronicle for Higher Education covered our report: Colleges Should Enhance Resources for Undocumented Students, Report Urges. Here’s How Some Are Doing That The article highlights the work of several of our colleges!
We hope you will help lift this report via your social media so it is shared broadly and leads to action.
