Intended to be non-partisan, many resources offered here are for everyone regardless of political affiliation or viewpoint. In some cases, resources and links related to issues and specific policies proposed by elected officials are part of this guide as these issues and proposed policies directly impact professional and personal lives of members of our community, such as immigrants or people of color.

Resources for Undocumented/DACAmented Students

Immigration has been a topic of national conversation throughout the recent election. Some of that conversation has been focus on undocumented immigrants in the United States and on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The status of DACA is uncertain at this time as President Donald J. Trump, during his campaign, promised to "immediately terminate" DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals).

Undocumented/DACAmented students face a very uncertain future under the Trump administration. Below you will find a list of resources that might help Undocumented/DACAmented students and those individuals who want to find ways to support Undocumented/DACAmented students.

Undocumented/Documented college students and youth are also often referred to as DREAMers. Learn more about the DREAM Act: proposed legislation that would benefit them, on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DREAM_Act
