Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Education

Dominican University’s ongoing commitment to supporting undocumented students has earned the institution high regards from a trio of higher education and immigrant rights organizations. TheDream.US, the Presidents’ Alliance on Higher Education and Immigration, and Immigrants Rising honored Dominican during their inaugural SUCCESS awards ceremony in late March. The first-year event recognized committed institutions, student advocates, and higher education leaders who are supporting undocumented students’ access and success on their campuses and beyond. Dominican University is one of the first universities in the country to publicly welcome and support students regardless of documentation and immigration status. Dominican prides itself on providing a campus climate and an academic experience that promotes the security and well-being of all persons, especially those who are underrepresented and struggling for voice and opportunity. Dominican specifically earned the SUCCESS award for its efforts developing Non-Employment Based Opportunities (NEBO) for students and “working across many departments to ensure their development and implementation.” Non-Employment Based Opportunities are inclusive, on-campus experiential learning opportunities open to all students at Dominican.
