Host Partners in the Convening: The three organizational co-hosts for this convening represent the leading organizations supporting undocumented students in higher education, and Swarthmore College has generously agreed to serve as the convening’s campus host.


Presidents’ Alliance on Higher Education and Immigration


The nonpartisan, nonprofit Presidents’ Alliance on Higher Education and Immigration brings college and university presidents and chancellors together on the immigration issues that impact higher education, our students, campuses, communities and nation. We work to advance just, forward-looking immigration policies and practices at the federal, state, and campus levels that are consistent with our heritage as a nation of immigrants and the academic values of equity and openness. The Alliance is composed of over 500 presidents and chancellors of public and private colleges and universities, enrolling over five million students in 43 states, D.C., and Puerto Rico. The Alliance also leads and directs the Higher Ed Immigration Portal, and TheDream.US and Immigrants Rising are partners in the Portal.



The nation’s largest college and career success program for immigrant youth, TheDream.US has provided more than 7,500 college scholarships to DREAMers attending over 75 partner colleges in 19 states and Washington, DC. This work is grounded in the belief that all young Americans, regardless of where they were born, should have the opportunity to get a college education and pursue a meaningful career that contributes to our country’s future.

Immigrants Rising


Immigrants Rising empowers undocumented students to achieve educational and career goals through personal, institutional and policy transformation. For more than a decade and a half, Immigrants Rising has also partnered with postsecondary institutions to develop actionable guidance and produced varied resources for undocumented students and educators alike. Through its Catalyst Fund initiative, Immigrants Rising partners with 32 colleges and universities across California to provide grant funds, capacity building, and technical assistance for campus-based educators. Immigrants Rising’s ongoing commitment is to work toward fostering sustainable policies, practices, and procedures which can lead to transformational institutional change in support of undocumented students.

Swarthmore College


Swarthmore College, a sanctuary campus since 2017, is proud to host the inaugural SUCCESS convening. A residential liberal arts college committed to peace, equity, and social responsibility, Swarthmore is located outside of Philadelphia, PA on a beautiful 425 acre arboretum- campus.
