We are the AB540 and Undocumented Student Center at UC Davis! Our space is a special one: celebrating our grand opening on October 21st, 2014 as the first Undocumented student center in the country, our goal is to support AB 540 and Undocumented students to be able to thrive in college and beyond. One of the most important responsibilities our Center has is to serve as an educational resource to our campus and community. By offering workshops, allyship trainings, and more, we will not only be sharing information but providing a space for important dialogue and learning on topics related to immigration and education. Our Center aims to keep the personal stories, experiences, and needs of immigrants at the forefront of our educational programs. As the topic of immigration has been at the center of many heated debates, we hope that through our educational programming the AB540 and Undocumented Student Center can serve as a platform for raising awareness and understanding to anyone willing to engage with us. We aim to provide holistic support for everything that comes up during your time at UC Davis. We are honored and excited to be building upon the legacy of our student leaders and empower our communities to do great things: that includes you! Above all else, know that you are not alone. We are here for you and happy to do whatever we can to be supportive. You bring incredible talents to our prestigious school, and we are committed to building on those talents by crafting a home for you here in Davis.
Hope to see you soon!
