UndocuPeer Training

The Division of Student Affairs, the Office for Diversity & Inclusion and the Division of Enrollment Planning and Management are partnering to offer a series of UndocuPeer trainings. These workshops are designed to offer staff from across the University information and resources to support all students regardless of immigration status. Below is a description of the workshop and a registration link. Please consider attending one of these sessions and encourage your staff to sign up as well.

The UndocuPeer training is a two-hour virtual interactive program facilitated by currently and formerly undocumented students that focuses on increasing educators, counselors, and administrators’ knowledge and skills for supporting undocumented students and advocating for institutional changes to ensure access, safety, and belonging for all students regardless of immigration status. Developed by undocumented students, trainers provide the necessary tools to begin or continue conversations on how to better support and work alongside undocumented students. Connecticut Students for a Dream will be offering five trainings during the Spring 2021 semester.

Sessions will be capped at 50 participants.
