DACAmented and Undocumented Students in Higher Education: Working Toward Inclusion
With Raquel Muñiz Castro, Assistant Professor, Educational Leadership & Higher Education, BC Lynch School of Education and Human Development; and Liaison to the BC Law School.
DACAmented and undocumented students are among the most vulnerable populations in higher education today, and their circumstances grow more precarious as the Trump administration threatens policies that provide them with temporary opportunity and protection. Faculty members and higher education practitioners can provide instrumental support for these populations that have been historically excluded from participation in higher education. This session will include an introduction to DACA, followed by a discussion of what the literature reveals to be the challenges experienced by DACAmented and undocumented students within and outside the classroom in higher education. After that, attendees will be introduced to best practices and recommendations from the literature, and explore how we can improve the experiences of DACAmented and undocumented students at Boston College and within our spheres of influence.
