About Us

NAVIGATE was created to address the growing need for resources that help immigrant students, regardless of immigration status, in Minnesota to pursue higher education.

Our Story

Our team is made up of college students ranging from freshman to seniors and graduates of high schools and universities. NAVIGATE was created to address the growing need for resources that help immigrant students, regardless of immigration status, in Minnesota to pursue higher education. Each member of NAVIGATE brings different skills, experiences, and ideas to the organization.

We strive for fair consideration of all immigrants in pursuit of higher education. We have focused our work on addressing the lack of information and bad information that currently exists in MN schools around immigrant students' right and means to pursue a college education.
