On March 27, 2020, Texas State University will host the inaugural Monarch Summit, a Higher Education Coalition on Supporting Immigrant Students. This is a gathering and exchange between students, faculty, staff and community members representing various colleges and universities across the state of Texas discussing and developing promising practices in support of immigrant students.
