Participants will apply introductory knowledge of the demographics, general needs, & educational experiences of undocumented students in Chicago & within the larger United States. Participants will also have the opportunity to discuss the issues of undocumented students who are experiencing socio-emotional challenges based on empirical research findings & to reflect upon how the information about undocumented students can be applied to their specific contextual practice.
