Colleges Look At Policies For Undocumented Students
from USA Today
Social justice is central to the mission of Dominican University, a small private Catholic college in suburban Chicago. Serving poor immigrants is part of its history. So as the school began to get more applications where Social Security numbers weren't provided, there was never a question of turning qualified undocumented students away, President Donna Carroll says. This year, the school pulled together $274,000 in financial aid for 17 undocumented students. Despite pushback from some donors and alumni, Carroll says her only regret is that she can't help more students. "Is it controversial? Yes," she says. But "it's against the law to discriminate against any student group. You need to start from that premise."
