Undocumented Students

At a time when members of our undocumented communities are grappling with fear and uncertainty, the California Community Colleges has launched a number of initiatives to reassure everyone that our campuses will remain safe, welcoming places for people from all backgrounds to learn.

Undocumented Student Action Week

Serving the largest number of undocumented students in the state, California Community Colleges are committed to serving all students, regardless of immigration status. Undocumented Student Action Week, October 14-18, 2019, is a systemwide campaign to advocate and provide support resources for our undocumented student population. During the week, California’s community colleges are encouraged to engage in advocacy and support efforts in solidarity with undocumented students throughout the state.

Undocumented Student Action Week is supported statewide by the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office, the Community College League of California, the Foundation for California Community Colleges, Immigrants Rising and the Student Senate for California Community Colleges.

The Action Week partners have developed a toolkit of suggested activities which colleges can tailor to meet the specific needs of their campus. During the week, a series of webinars will be available to provide additional support and information for undocumented students, faculty and staff at California's community colleges. These materials, resources and additional information can be found by visiting the Community College League of California Webpage or via email at actionweek@foundationccc.org
