   College Student Homelessness: A

                    Hidden Epidemic

                            CHAD   KLITZMAN*

   This Note  examines a surprising obstacle for an increasing number  of
   college students: homelessness.   After first offering an overview  of
   legislation in the education field dealing specifically with the education of
   those experiencing homelessness, this Note then offers insights into how
   and why  people experiencing homelessness tackle both the world of higher
   education and their respective institutions' capacities to service their needs
   both in and out of the classroom. This exploration occurs largely through
   interview testimony conducted by the author. Many  institutions lack the
   resources needed to service all of a students' needs (food, clothing, etc.).
   After exploring the malleability of the higher education and social services
   systems, this Note  argues that certain policy changes     legislation,
   community   work, and  change  at the  institutional level        would be
   beneficial in combatting this growing homelessness epidemic.

   *   The author completed the field research contained herein through his involve-
ment in Columbia Law School's Vision, Action, and Social Change course, under the
guidance of Professor Susan Sturm. Columbia Law School's Center for Institutional and
Social Change - and its groundbreaking work at Hostos Community College through the
Bronx Corridors to College Project - was also critical in connecting the author with op-
portunities to interview activists and students in the community. The author is grateful
to both the Center and to Professor Sturm for their unwavering support of this work.
