This policy report focuses on high-school-aged newcomer immigrant and resettled refugee students and explores their experiences across four schools in Arizona and New York. Using mixed research methods, the report examines the ways in which these students develop a sense of belonging and civic identity, and the role of schools in influencing student growth and development. The report presents findings on diversity and inclusion, student belonging and well-being, civic identity, rights, and civic engagement, and school and community participation, as well as policy recommendations for key stakeholders.

In advance of the workshop, you may read the policy report, available at https://academiccommons.columbia.edu/doi/10.7916/d8-zw9k-dv30.
