Puerto Rico Teach-In

On November 21, 2017, CLLAS sponsored a teach-in titled, “History of Environmental, Economic, and Political Debts: Puerto Rico and the US,” featuring professors Cecilia Enjuto-Rangel (Romance Languages) and Rocío Zambrana (Philosophy). They engaged in conversation about Puerto Rico and its place in the contemporary colonial history of the United States.

Dreamer ally training sessions available for faculty and staff

From Around the O: Dreamer ally training sessions available for faculty and staff
 
October 30, 2017—The second “Dreamer” ally training for faculty and staff will be held Friday, Nov. 17, at the UO’s Many Nations Longhouse.

The UO uses the term Dreamers to refer to students who are undocumented, participate in DACA, receive tuition equity or are from families with mixed immigration status. DACA refers to Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, an immigration policy that allows two-year stays for some undocumented immigrants who entered the country before their 16th birthday and who have attended school or joined the military.

At the four-hour training, faculty and staff will have the opportunity to explore the challenges facing UO students whose immigrant legal status is precarious or unresolved or who have family members in that situation.

In addition to interactive exercises and discussion, information will be provided on basic laws and policies affecting these students, appropriate referral resources and what to do should immigration officers come to campus. Participants will also receive guidance on how to effectively support Dreamers and will be asked to identify one or more positive changes that they and their unit can make to support Dreamers on campus. › Continue reading
