​​October 14-18, 2019

Undocumented Student Week of Action serves as an opportunity to highlight the challenges our undocumented students face in today’s current climate, while also advocating for Congress to take immediate legislative action on important federal policies and providing resources to better assist undocumented students on our campus.

Here are a few ways to get involved:

  1. Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to attend the many events throughout the week.

  2. Show your support through your social media campaign in support of our undocumented students.
