"Cursed and Blessed": Examining the Socioemotional and Academic Experiences of Undocumented Latina and Latino College Students
Perez, William; Cortes, Richard D.; Ramos, Karina; Coronado, Heidi
New Directions for Student Services, n131 p35-51 Fall 2010
This chapter examines the socioemotional experiences and characteristics of undocumented Latina and Latino college students. The authors look at how these students' socioemotional experiences compare to those of their undocumented peers in relation to their academic and mental health outcomes. In addition, they highlight how undocumented students differ in the ways they cope with their socioemotional and academic challenges as a result of their legal status. Finally, they discuss how the college administration, faculty, and support staff can assist undocumented Latina and Latino college students who are pursuing higher education.
