Accessing Higher Education for Ohio's New Americans


Refugees and immigrants face a wide array of institutional barriers upon their arrival in the United States. Agencies like ours are always linking clients to community resources; however, there is still a gap between New American student enrollments in college and native-born student enrollments. Representatives from College Liftoff will explain why this phenomenon persists and provide tools for altering this trend at our Refugee Integration Conference.

For example, during day one, Laura Berger from College Liftoff will facilitate a workshop highlighting what she deems the “seven pathways to success.” Guests will learn how to access a wide range of educational opportunities in Ohio and engage in a candid discussion surrounding student debt.
