The burgeoning research on undocu/DACAmented students attending community colleges suggests that barriers to college access and persistence continue to exist despite in-state tuition policies. This webinar will feature panelists who discuss undocu/DACAmented students attending community colleges and how the current political climate has influenced undocu/DACAmented community college students’ navigation of their educational trajectories, using the state of Colorado as a case study.
Read the research brief on which the webinar will be based at s.uconn.edu/communitycollege.
