The School of Education, the Department of Student Diversity & Multicultural Affairs and Loyola’s Alumni Relations sponsored a day-long event, “A Focus on Undocumented Youth in Education” on Wednesday, March 16, 2016.  The afternoon consisted of several  “teach-in sessions that attempted  to increase awareness and inform others about important issues relevant to undocumented youth and families and to encourage participants to take action. The highlight of the afternoon was a panel of college students from Arrupe College and Loyola University Chicago who told their stories about being undocumented and the impact this had on their lives.  The day concluded with an evening lecture by Lauren Heidbrink, PhD, Assistant Professor, Chair of Social and Behavior Sciences, National Lewis University titled “Crossing Borders: Lessons from Unaccompanied Migrant Youth.”
