University Leadership Initiative (ULI) harnesses the talents, abilities and determination of youth -particularly college students- to affect long-term change in a proactive manner. Specially, ULI conducts outreach at the local, state, and national level to address the dilemma faced by young people who were brought to the United States years ago as undocumented immigrant children, but who have since grown up in the United States, have stayed out of trouble, and wish to continue their education on to college.
