UndocuAlly Program for Educators (UPE)

The UndocuAlly Program for Educators (UPE) is an educational learning opportunity for educators and community members to develop their knowledge and awareness in serving undocumented student populations in higher education. 

Each UPE is a comprehensive 3-hour long session that includes four different areas of focus presented by our facilitators: Legal Landscape, Current Context and Statistics, Mental Health and Student Narratives. Each section offers in-depth information, thus we require registered participants to plan ahead for full attendance.
