Equity and Inclusion for the 1% (not THAT 1%): Student Veterans in Higher Education

During this course our students probe the dynamics of immigrant experiences and serve at immigrant supporting agencies. In 2016-17 after a surge in federal immigration enforcement and arrests, 200+ campus employees and students have been trained to serve as allies to support the unique needs of undocumented students on campus. Our campus also hosted a CSU systemwide Undocumented Student Resource Summit.
