The Undocumented Student Experience at CSU, Chico
Angella Terres Toral
With the passage of the California Dream Act, immigrant students who were brought to the United States without documentation may now apply for campus scholarships and institutional grants. Other legislation has made life easier for these students, such as the law that keeps eligible students from paying nonresident tuition at California public colleges and universities. But these advances have been hard-fought and a long time coming. Do we really know and understand the hardships undocumented students overcome to obtain a higher education? In this Conversations on Diversity and Inclusion session, we learn about the obstacles that our very own CSU, Chico undocumented students continue to overcome on a daily basis. Hear first-hand about the experiences of these students and learn the truth behind the myths heard in the news media.
