The LaGuardia Community College Foundation Board of Directors created the New Americans Fund to help our highly-motivated immigrant students stay in school and remain on the path to graduation. The Fund provides tuition support and emergency funds for students facing a financial crisis, in the form of MetroCards, and money for textbooks or other essentials or unexpected living expenses. Additionally, the Fund provides access to critical services, including career skills training and resources to help immigrant students and their families to navigate ever-changing immigration policies. LaGuardia’s immigrant students are hardworking, have tremendous grit, and are determined to succeed. Let’s ensure their college education is not sacrificed, and give them a shot at the American dream. Please support the New Americans Fund.
LaGuardia’s long standing commitment to welcoming, protecting and supporting our students, regardless of immigration status, has not wavered since our founding. We remain committed to diversity, equity and inclusion and will steadfastly continue to offer a welcoming environment for students of all backgrounds.
As mentioned above, LaGuardia Rising is a volunteer committee made up of a cross-section of students, faculty, and staff who share a commitment to ensuring the safety and protection of the rights of all LaGuardia Community College students, particularly new immigrant, international, and undocumented students. Appointed by the President of the College, the Committee advises on substantive steps the college can take to:
Provide access to legal assistance, financial help, access to benefits and other support services for students, faculty and staff impacted by recent immigration executive orders and other actions.
Ensure the swift and vigorous response to any situations of harassment or intimidation, either on or off campus.
