Sharing the Dream 2016

University of St. Francis
Pat Sullivan Recreation Center
Join others as we continue the conversation and momentum from 2015 for this second Sharing the Dream conference. This is a day designed to help educators learn how they can support undocumented students on the path to a college degree and beyond.
This workshop is for teachers, counselors, school administrators, college student personnel, admission representatives, counseling and higher education graduate students, and other allies.
Thirteen thousand undocumented students graduate yearly from Illinois high schools. Fewer than half of undocumented young adults ages 18-24 with a high school degree have attended any college and fewer than 10% will enroll in college immediately upon graduation from high school.
