The results of study of undocumented students at Jesuit universities, including Loyola University Chicago, will be unveiled Feb. 26 at an event in Washington, D.C.
The research study is seeking to survey and understand the social context and current practices and attitudes in American Jesuit schools of higher education regarding undocumented students, according to a news release.
The study is looking at, among other things, structures that support or challenge the higher education of undocumented students; best practices and strategies for ensuring their eventual success; a potential collaborative model for helping students as they move through their university years; and issues facing students after graduation, the news release states.
Fairfield University in Fairfield, Conn. was awarded a two-year, $200,000 grant from the Ford Foundation for the study. Fairfield University is leading the project, collaborating with Santa Clara University in California and Loyola University Chicago. The findings will be unveiled Feb. 26 at the Kennedy Caucus Room, Russell Senate Office Building.
