Conference on Immigrant Students' Journeys to Higher Education, December 17, 1:00-5:00 PM

Professor Peter Guarnaccia will report on his study of immigrant students at Rutgers University and their experiences of balancing their family cultures of origin with learning American culture, termed acculturation, to successfully get to university. Through focus groups, interviews were done with 160 immigrant students from 22 cultural organizations at Rutgers. The conference will provide insights into what families, schools, communities, and universities can do to support immigrant studentsí educational aspirations.

The conference will be held December 17, 2013 from 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM in room 120 at the Institute for Health, 112 Paterson Street.
