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

Pulitzer winner Jose Antonio Vargas to be in residence at UO

Pulitzer winner Jose Antonio Vargas to be in residence at UO / Around the O 

October 5, 2017 — At age 16, Jose Antonio Vargas went to the motor vehicles department to get a driver’s license and discovered he was in the U.S. illegally.

Jose Antonio Vargas

The green card he’d been given by family when he moved to America from the Philippines as a child was a fake. For years Vargas kept his status a secret, even as he became a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist whose writing appeared in publications such as the San Francisco Chronicle, Rolling Stone and the New Yorker.

Vargas will be telling his story to University of Oregon audiences as the 2017-18 Wayne Morse Chair of Law and Politics. On Oct. 24, he will give a public lecture, “Define American: My Life as an Undocumented Immigrant.” The event begins at 7 p.m. in Room 156, Straub Hall.

In 2011, Vargas wrote a groundbreaking essay for New York Times Magazine revealing himself as undocumented and appeared on the cover of Time magazine in conjunction with a follow-up story he wrote. Some of the ramifications were immediate: He lost the driver’s license he’d finally managed to obtain, and he had to have difficult conversations with close friends to whom he’d never told his secret. His status makes it unsafe to have a fixed address, so he travels most of the time, living in hotel rooms and staying with friends. › Continue reading
