UndocuAlly Training to Be Held on June 14
The Ad Hoc Committee on DACA/Undocumented Students and the Division of Enrollment and the Student Experience will sponsor an UndocuAlly training on Friday, June 14, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. in 201ABC Goldstein Student Center on South Campus.
The training is designed for anyone on campus who works with students, including undocumented students, students who hold DACA status or students from “mixed-status families”—students who are U.S. citizens but have an undocumented family member.
Topics covered include an overview of laws, policies and issues currently impacting our student population; best practices for improving services for our students and how to be allies and advocates for those impacted.
“The UndocuAlly training offers campus community members an opportunity to gain greater understanding of the issues impacting the living and learning experience of students who are undocumented, hold DACA status or are members of ‘mixed-status’ families. We hope that by participating attendees feel more empowered as allies and advocates and in turn, further empower our students,” says Rob Hradsky, senior associate vice president for the student experience.
Space is limited. To register to attend, and to request accommodations, complete the UndocuAlly Training registration form. The deadline to request accommodations is May 31.
