Empowering undocumented young people to achieve educational and career goals
UndocuCollege Guide & Equity Tool
This publication is meant to help students, faculty, staff and administrators at institutions of higher education in California work together across regions and systems to achieve the educational equity and inclusion of undocumented students.
There are three main components:
Section 1: Elevating California institutional challenges in supporting undocumented students in higher education
Section 2: Highlighting innovative and effective practices from different colleges across the state
Section 3: An equity tool for colleges and universities to assess, analyze and report about the level of support currently present at their institution for undocumented students, as well as provide a clearer framework for conceptualizing institutional support
