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

For The Register-Guard

Sept. 13, 2017

Like many, we are reeling in the wake of the decision announced by the Trump administration to end the DACA program. This decision undermines the missions of our community colleges, universities and public schools, and will damage our local, state and national economies. For the past several years, the University of Oregon Dreamers Working Group has raised awareness on campus of the assets our undocumented students bring to the university, the unique challenges they face that are above and beyond the challenges of other college students, and to help staff and faculty throughout campus better understand how to respect and support our undocumented students. › Continue reading
