UndocuScholars Project

Co-Principal Investigators: Robert Teranishi, Ph.D. & Carola Suárez-Orozco, Ph.D.
Funded by: the Ford Foundation

This national survey focused on the college experiences of undergraduate UndocuScholar students. Its goals were to expand knowledge about the range of UndocuScholars’ experiences in order to challenge false assumptions and damaging misperceptions, and to use this knowledge to better inform on-campus practice and services as well as local and national public policy.
