Muñoz’s presentation will address the process of how undocumented students “come out” and make meaning of their legal status within the context of higher education and social activism. Her scholarly interests center on the experiences of underserved populations in higher education with the ultimate goal of informing immigration policy and higher education practices. She focuses her research on issues of access, equity and college persistence for undocumented Latina/o students.

The presentation is co-sponsored by the Penn State College of Education Center for the Study of Higher Education.
