Recognizing and Supporting Immigrant Origin Students

Webinar - Recognizing and Supporting Immigrant Origin Students

February 8, 2024 at noon

Carola Suárez-Orozco, PhD

Immigrant Origin students are the fastest growing student population in higher education, now making up 31% of our students across the U.S. Yet, they are often unrecognized and lost in other overlapping, distinct, and incomplete designations (e.g., first-generation to college; racial-ethnic groups; undocumented students). In this webinar, Dr. Suárez-Orozco discussed new data about immigrant-origin students in higher education. Dr. Suárez-Orozco considered: 1- WHO they are; 2- Why they have been invisible despite their growing presence; 3- intersecting and overlapping identities in experiences and opportunities; and 4-made specific recommendations for practice.
