Spreading awareness to faculty and staff to build a supportive platform for DACA students.

Project: In the CU community DACA students are currently facing real uncertainty with their futures. Since undocumented students cannot receive federal aid and are a small portion of the student body (at the moment), there is little support provided from CU in contrast with other universities. For this reason, I would like to help CU initiate funds and additional resources that will help support, strengthen, and grow the supportive community around undocumented students. My project would involve spreading awareness to faculty and staff to build a supportive platform for students like myself.

 

Inspiration: CU has a growing population of Undocumented students and must have a support system for them.

 

Future Plans for Project: I hope to gain Faculty/student/administrative support and get funds to retain undocumented students on campus.
