Georgia Profs Offer 'Freedom University' for Immigrants

August 26, 2011

New state policies have excluded from the University of Georgia immigrants who lack legal documentation to live in the United States. So five University of Georgia professors are starting "Freedom University," a weekly seminar in which they will offer instruction for high school graduates who are barred from the university because of the new policy, the Associated Press reported. "This is not a substitute for letting these students into U.Ga., Georgia State or the other schools," said Pam Voekel, a history professor at Georgia and one of the program's initiators. "It is designed for people who, right now, don't have another option."
