New Report on Community College Services for Immigrant and Refugee Students

Upwardly Global published a new report, “Unlocking Potential: Enhancing Community College Services for Immigrant and Refugee Students.” A 2023 survey of campus practitioners found that “Close to 80% of respondents say their community college needs to improve their capacity in meeting the specific needs of immigrant and refugee students.”  Recommendations include encouraging community colleges to explore diverse sources of funding for services, invest in career services for these populations, increase training of faculty and staff to better serve immigrant and refugee students, and leverage statewide and national networks.
