Immigrant Student Success Center

Immigrant Student Success Center

The Immigrant Student Success Center is a welcoming and safe space that helps our students develop emotional wellbeing, a sense of community and belonging, and empowerment. We value and understand the experiences undocumented students bring to the John Jay community and work to help students develop their unique gifts and talents.

The Center offers a range of services to empower students to succeed inside and outside of the classroom:

  • Information: We share and provide information through our newsletter, social media, and training sessions for staff, students and faculty.
  • Mentoring: We work to connect students with each other to create community, support, and trust.
  • Resources: We refer students to educational, financial, and legal services on and off campus.
  • Legal screenings
  • Academic workshops
  • Financial support
  • Housing information
  • Mental Health Services
  • Advocacy: We increase awareness of immigrant student issues on campus by mediating conversations and advocating for student resources on campus.
