Undocumented immigrant youth must learn to navigate a
complex web of challenges in finding access to U.S. higher education,
complicated by their non-citizen status, national and state laws, institutional
policies, and various levels of campus support. This special 2-week intensive and introductory
learning experience will provide a general overview of political, legal,
social, and psychological contexts that affect access and equity to education
for these students. This eTutorial will introduce effective practices and begin
a conversation about creating an undocufriendly campus for students. Participants should be prepared to focus on weekly activities that includes discussion posts, quizzes, and other in-depth assignments, including creating a philosophy of advising undecided students.
This learning experience is perfect for new advisors and/or faculty and staff new to this topic. Individual members may register, and advising administrators, deans, vice provosts, training coordinators, business managers, and other institutional administrators may wish to enroll multiple advisors new to their campus or advising.
Participants will register on the NACADA website when registration opens. Participants will use the NACADA Canvas Learning Management System to complete the eTutorial. All participants will be asked to read a short article before this eTutorial begins.
eTUTORIAL MODERATORS: Moderators are well-informed about current issues, policies, and advising practices relevant to DACA, undocumented, and DREAM students.
