Webcast: Undocumented students pathway to college

REPLAY video from a webcast of the American Educational Research Association’s Social Justice Initiative workshop on the resources and needs of college-bound undocumented students on April 29 at the University of Texas at San Antonio.

The session is to help undocumented students, immigrant advocates and the parents and families understand what services they can expect or ask for as students navigate the pathway to college. Parents and families who cannot attend in person are encouraged to attend the online livestream session or replay it later.

After the presentations, audience members may ask questions, including how the situation may be changing for DACA and deportation in the new administration.

Thanks to sponsorship from the UTSA College of Public Policy, anyone can watch the webcast live or replay it later for free, right on this page.
