I am a stan state undocu-ally educator

The goal of the Undocu-Ally Training is to build a campus culture that acknowledges, accepts, and integrates students from diverse backgrounds regardless of their immigration status.

Who is an Ally?

  • Acknowledges that undocumented students have a right to be enrolled in the university.
  • Listens openly, yet does not interrogate the student on their immigration status.
  • Does not "out" the student to others, without the student's permission.
  • Creates a climate of trust that allows the student to reveal their situation at their own pace.
  • Handles students' emotions with reserve, empathy, and support, and refers to appropriate professional campus staff as needed.
  • Is clear about his or her own personal motivation in becoming an Ally.
  • Is committed to maintaining the confidentiality and respecting the privacy of people who are undocumented.

Training Objectives

  • Educate members of the campus community about the needs and concerns of undocumented students and their families.
  • Establishing a campus culture that acknowledges, accepts, and integrates students from diverse backgrounds regardless of their immigration status. A campus culture free of discrimination!
  • Establish a campus network that can provide trustworthy and sensitive support, information, and assistance to undocumented students and their families.
  • Assist members of the campus community in understanding the fears and discrimination experienced by undocumented students and families.
  • Provide an opportunity for faculty and staff to demonstrate their support toward undocumented students and their families.

How to Take Action

The California State University has joined many other institutions throughout the United States to urge Congress to pursue legislation to restore the protections afforded by DACA. We encourage you to do the same.

You may reach out to the offices of Senator Kamala Harris and Senator Dianne Feinstein and to members of Congress.
