“Undocumented and in College: Students and Institutions in a Climate of National Hostility, a new book published by Fordham University Press, documents the experiences of undocumented students as they navigate the processes of entering and then thriving in Jesuit colleges.

The book, which is based on an extensive two-year study conducted from 2010 to 2012, was edited by Terry-Ann Jones, Ph.D., associate professor of sociology and anthropology and Director of the International Studies Program at Fairfield University, and Laura Nichols, PH.D., associate professor of sociology at Santa Clara University.

Press editor Fred Nachbaur said the book—an unsolicited arrival in 2015—interested him because of its clear focus on a population that hadn’t received much attention.
