The UC Collaborative to Promote Immigrant and Student Equity (UC PromISE) aims to promote cutting-edge, policy-relevant research on the extent to which immigration policies have exacerbated vulnerabilities among undocumented students and expanded collateral consequences to citizen students with undocumented parents. Funded by a University of California Multicampus Research Programs and Initiatives grant, UC PromISE will build on prior survey data collected by the Undocumented Student Equity Project (USEP) to conduct a new UC-wide survey of undocumented students and students from mixed-status families. We also seek to develop a cohort of scholars doing related work through a series of workshops and funding competitions.
