Description:
To effectively support and increase the equity for CSU students who are undocumented – from campus to career – requires awareness of the many contributions they make to the campus, their unique and powerful stories, the challenges they face in the broader socio/political context, and resources that are available to support them while at CSU and when considering their transition to career opportunities. Hear directly from students who are undocumented as well as receive specific information regarding how you can be supportive. Also, you will leave with additional resources and things you can do to build your understanding of how to best support the students.
