dc.description.abstractThis study uses qualitative methods to analyze a non-profit organization that seeks to help undocumented students successfully transition into postsecondary education. Located in Atlanta, Georgia, Freedom University began in 2011 as a response to an admissions ban restricting undocumented students from being able to attend Georgia's most selective public institutions. By using theories related to social capital and college choice, this dissertation seeks to explain how Freedom University works to assist undocumented students fulfill their dreams of attending a postsecondary institution.
