The ninth annual Latina/o Education Summit brings together legal scholars, social scientists, advocates, and administrators in order to assess the impact and implications of the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and the 2011 DREAM Act on Latina/o students. According to keynote speaker Michael A. Olivas, there are roughly 1.7 million immigrants currently in the U.S. who might meet the requirements for DACA. This year’s summit is presented in cooperation with the UCLA School of Law and the UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies.
