Undocuscholars Research Project.

In 2014, the Institute for Immigration, Globalization & Education at the University of California, Los Angeles launched the UndocuScholars Research Project, a national study focused on the college experiences of undocumented undergraduate students. The goals of the national project were to expand knowledge about the range of undocumented student experiences in order to challenge false assumptions and damaging misconceptions and to use the knowledge to better inform on-campus practices and services as well as local and national policy.
