NYU Steinhardt Hosts Panel on Undocumented College Students, April 2nd

The Steinhardt Institute for Higher Education Policy will host a panel discussion, Undocumented College Students: In the Shadows of the Ivory Tower. The event will cover findings of America’s first survey of undocumented college students, published earlier this year by researchers at UCLA.

The panel discussion will be held at NYU’s Kimmel Center for University Life, Rosenthal Pavilion, 10th floor (60 Washington Square South at LaGuardia Place) on Thurs., April 2 from 9-11 a.m.

The UCLA Institute for Immigration, Globalization, and Education released the findings of its nationwide study of undocumented undergraduates, which for the first time, sheds light on the needs and challenges of undocumented college students. The report, In the Shadows of the Ivory Tower: Undocumented Undergraduates and the Liminal State of Immigration Reform, carries implications for policy makers as well as colleges and universities.

The event’s discussants include:

  • Steven Choi, Executive Director, New York Immigration Coalition
  • Carola Suárez-Orozco, Professor of Education, UCLA and co-principal investigator of the report
  • Marcelo Suárez-Orozco, Wasserman Dean and Distinguished Professor of Education, UCLA and co-principal investigator of the report
  • Robert Teranishi, Professor of Education, Morgan and Helen Chu Endowed Chair in Asian American Studies, UCLA and co-principal investigator of the report
  • Hirokazu Yoshikawa, Courtney Sale Ross Professor of Globalization and Education, NYU Steinhardt

The panel discussion is free and open to the public. Space is limited; attendees must RSVP online at the event’s website.
