Expanding Educational and Career Opportunities for Immigrant Students at Community Colleges

CCCIE launched its National Survey on Increasing Opportunities for New Americans at Community Colleges in March 2015 to collect input from community college faculty, leadership and administrators on the opportunities and challenges faced in serving immigrant students. This document summarizes the key findings from CCCIE’s review of input from 160 community college respondents in 33 states that, taken together, account for well over 80% of the nation’s foreign-born respondents. While more than one-third of the respondents said their colleges include explicit references to support of immigrant students in their strategic or high-level plans, the survey found a wide variability in actual programs implemented on the ground.
