Who We Are

The uLEAD (University Leaders for Educational Access and Diversity) Network is an online community of university leaders committed to broadening postsecondary access and support for all students, regardless of immigration status. University leaders encompass a wide variety of individuals in the field, including: presidents, board members, diversity officers, admissions officers, financial aid officers, registrars, student affairs professionals, general counsel, and student activists.   

The National Forum on Higher Education for the Public Good launched the uLEAD Network in the spring of 2013 with a commitment to access to higher education and providing tools that enhance leaders' ability to create positive changes in their institutions.

The uLEAD Network provides an array of resources such as training modules, informational webinars, and research and reports for individuals seeking additional ways to support undocumented students and enable institutional changes. In the coming months, the uLEAD Network will launch an intranet feature that will provide university leaders the security and confidentiality to collaborate on issues centering on undocumented student service and support.  In addition, we will introduce an online discussion forum where a wider audience can engage in dialogue and discussion that address challenges and promising practices for serving undocumented students in postsecondary institutions.
