Report shines light on vulnerable population

The quarter-million undocumented college students in the U.S. navigate a stressful educational landscape due to current immigration laws, uneven state and university policies, and few campus resources, according to the first national survey of its kind. "In The Shadows of the Ivory Tower: Undocumented Undergraduates and the Liminal State of Immigration Reform," urges policy makers and institutions of higher education to streamline and improve information and services for these students, who currently account for only 2% of the students in the nation's colleges but whose numbers are expected to grow. The report was a collaboration of the Institute for Immigration, Globalization, and Education at UCLA and the UndocuScholars Project.
