The University of Houston community is comprised of a diverse student population which includes undocumented students and “dream scholars.” Dream Scholars are students who qualify for Senate Bill 1528 legislation; the term “Dream Scholars” emphasizes the academic hopes and scholastic identity of these students on our campus. Many undocumented students and dream scholars experience unique strengths and challenges in the pursuit of a college education. There are several resources on the University of Houston campus that offer support to Dream Scholars and undocumented students.
The Center for Diversity and Inclusion works in collaboration with the Center for Student Empowerment and Counseling and Psychological Services to provide a variety of programming in support of students who are undocumented and/or are affacted by DACA or the Dream Act.
Past events have included:
- Legislation 101: What You Need to Know About DACA and the Dream Act Updates
- DreamZone Ally Training
- Facilitated Dialogue: The Social and Emotional Impacts of Citizenship Status
- Dreamers+ Student Mixer
