Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Cal State Long Beach professor Armando Vazquez-Ramos has created the California-Mexico Study Abroad Program. This opportunity allows undocumented students, or Dreamers, with DACA (Differed Action for Childhood Arrivals) status to go to Mexico. The program gives students time to visit their family members in various parts of the country and supplements the curriculum by enrolling them in a progressive Spanish speaking school. Read more about the program here. According to the American Immigration Council, there are approximately 1.4 million young people that may qualify as Dreamers in the U.S.  Is your campus connecting Dreamers to any similar study abroad opportunities?
