A Study Funded by the Ford Foundation

In 2010, Fairfield University, Santa Clara University, and Loyola University Chicago launched a 2-year study to understand legal and social context, attitudes and social current practices in Jesuit institutions of higher education in the United States regarding undocumented students. It is estimated that only 5-10% of the 65,000 undocumented students that graduate from an American high school each year are able to enter post-secondary education.

Why the Research?

The project seeks to provide presidential leadership in higher education regarding undocumented students, and critically analyze the issues and challenges to bring immigration to the forefront of discussion around policy and access.
