In May, LUM Immigration Clinic Director, Susan Brouillette received the Catholic Legal Immigration Network five-year service award. Susan was nominated based on her achievements since starting the LUM Immigration Clinic in 2014.
 
Susan was cited for accomplishments in the areas of volunteer recruitment, effective
partnering, and fundraising. LUM Executive Director Joe Micon stated in his nomination, “The success of the LUM Immigration Clinic is the result of Susan’s initiative and resolve. Despite the adversarial climate regarding the United States immigration system, the LUM Immigration Clinic
has managed to grow and at the same time provide quality immigration services. “
 
Areas of Growth
Under Susan’s leadership the clinic has grown in the services it offers. Not only does it help clients navigate an often complex immigration system, but it has partnered with LARA and the James Ackerman Center for Democratic Citizenship to offer citizenship classes to help permanent residents prepare for their naturalization interview. Other partnerships that Susan has cultivated include Greater Lafayette Immigrant Allies, Greater Lafayette YWCA, and the Lafayette Catholic Diocese. Susan has also been fundamental in meeting the clinic’s fundraising
goals by helping to raise over $85,000 in the last three years. The funds raised enable the clinic to continue to provide high quality legal immigration services for low income clients.
