DACA and Undocumented Students Support

Spring 2022 Updates

We would like to focus on Latinx cultural and political issues on campus. In the Fall, Committee Chair Sonia Robles will be working with Meghan Dabkowski, Noël Archambeault, Gabriela Coleman, and Natalia Davila on a Day of the Dead event. This year we are dedicating the altar (ofrenda) which will be placed in the Munroe Hall Lobby, to victims of femicide. Combating structural racism takes all of us and we hope to continue to do my part by raising awareness about the Latinx student body population at the University and about an array of cultural and political issues which directly affect all of us.

Mission

Offering support, guidance, advocacy to a community of students who -because of their legal status in this country- face additional obstacles in their studies.

Goals

  • Knowing and understanding more about the challenges undocumented students at UD face.
